09:37 AM ET 09.07 | Flames veteran winger Mike Cammalleri welcomed the news that Brian Burke was appointed Calgary's president of hockey operations. "I've never really talked to Brian and yet it's one of those things where I feel like I know him because I've talked to so many people, mutual friends, I've talked to players who have played for him," said Cammalleri, who spoke to Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf on Thursday about Burke. "I played in L.A. and had to play against those Anaheim teams; those were some really good Brian Burke teams. I like the way his teams play. I thought he did a tremendous job in Toronto, too. Look where they're at now." Ironically, Cammalleri could have ended up playing for Burke in Toronto years ago when, as an unrestricted free agent, he met with Leafs brass in Toronto on July 1 before ultimately signing in Montreal. "Brian was actually in Sweden that day on July 1, that's when he signed the Monster (Jonas Gustavsson)," said Cammalleri. "But I was dealing with Dave Nonis and met with them down at their office." The question now is what is in store for Cammalleri on a rebuilding Flames team that has shed many veteran players over the last year. Cammalleri is entering the final year of his contract. "Who knows? We'll see," he said of his future in Calgary. "We'll see what they want to do. Truthfully, I got a lot of respect for (GM) Jay (Feaster) and (assistant GM) John (Weisbrod), I've had an open dialogue with them. Nothing to report, but we'll see what they want to do. I like it there, it's a good place. I'm open (to an extension)."

Like I said before - next flood they'll just get **urkses to part his cheeks and save the Sadd-ol-dump with a timely blast.

Really don't see wot anyone sees in this guy, other than buying favour with the Nat Ho League office, or getting more. butt questionable, press.

Surprised Fat Stephen didn't hire him to straighten out the messes (*urkses, fetch me some laws) - aha, he's starting at the constituency office level, guessing that's why there's no term - when they move up to the big O, he can sort out the M&Ms, and the PMO, RCMP, Senate, etc, SC, PO, Enbridge, TCP, etc - in his spare-tire time.

He's just trolling for a lucrative, multi-year contract.
