07:32 AM ET 09.05 | The Battle of Alberta may be on the verge of adding an element of organizational truculence in the form of Brian Burke. If [Burke] is about to join the Calgary Flames, the veteran front-office hockey man wasn't about to tip his hand Wednesday night at Calgary International Airport. When asked if he was about to join the NHL club, Burke declined comment. "I'm not going to have any comment about this tonight," Burke said. "Sorry, you had to camp out here." ... The Flames didn't respond to requests, but the hockey world was rampant with the rumour. "Burke is deep into discussions to join the Flames in an executive position but it is not, as of this moment, done," tweeted TSN hockey insider Bob McKenzie on Wednesday night. "Beyond that, for us, it's all speculative. Could very well get done."

Glad to see he's landing somewhere so we'll have something more to talk about.

He's become the Mike Keenan of upper management.

This is about far enough from Dallas for me.

Well I'm sure he'll do for Calagary what he did for Toronto.

LMFAO - Harry's on a mini golf/fishing vacation. He'll probably cut it short due to this tragedy.

Watch him pull a Moses and lead Calgary to the promised land.

I never thought Harry had done anything so horrible as to deserve this. I thought Burkie would wind up in Damascus as GM of Assad's hockey team?

Hank didn't say what the "promise" was. Probably no draft choices after 2015 and a long term contract for Jagr.

I don't think those who partake in mass suicides always get to heaven, personally...

Maybe to the ACC instead?

I apologize, I've spent too much time laughing at Canuck's posts. Obviously I've become impressionable.
