09:25 AM ET 09.21 | Former Vancouver Canucks general manager Brian Burke has quietly won a default judgment in B.C. Supreme Court against five online posters who allegedly defamed him. The five defendants -- who are only identified by their online surnames NoFixed Address, CamBarkerfan, Lavy 16, Tulowd and Naggah -- had failed to file and serve a notice of response to Burke's lawsuit within the time allowed. Burke, who is now president of hockey operations for the Calgary Flames, had earlier won the right to serve his legal papers against the online commenters via the message boards they used to spread the allegedly defamatory material. The commenters were given 33 days to respond to the civil claim for damages but none have done so. The court also ordered that the defendants pay Burke damages that are to be assessed and to pay the plaintiff legal costs to be assessed.

Maybe everybody in this video should take Burkie to court......

Does anybody know exactly what they said about him? With his tenure in Toronto you wouldn't really have to embellish anything to get your point across.

Allegedly Burkie had an alleged affair with Hazel May when he was allegedly in To***to.

If anybody should be suing over this it's her. Allegedly......

So I'm guessing after a week of utter dismay all is well in Leafland now that the CBC has To***to back on HNIC?

Hey Burkie, checks in the mail. Because FN posters have hung you in effigy. Be glad, it's the only time you were said to be hung.

Agreed. If anyone should be suing over the alleged incident it should be her.

Sedins is English for diving, and lose of motivation!

He should be paid for comment pertaining to the Leafs being on the same worldly importance as the Vatican! Haaaa! The Leafs are much more important than a senior citizen wearing his pyjamas and waving some pretty smelling smoke. ;)

C'mon, Canuck, you can tell us! How much will you have to pay up? :-)

Unnamed sources have eluded to the possibility that he is allegedly a low life weasel. It is not my place to further such rumors so out of respect for due process, I will not do so at this time. We have however been contacted by the head of the weasel community who is infuriated by the alleged allegations and are demanding to know the alleged source in order to secure an immediate alleged retraction. We allegedly deny all knowledge and are repairing to the bar for further consideration of this issue.

Further bulletins as they happen.

Hahahahaha you gotta be kidding, right?

My Lord. How noone has escorted this guy out of hockey, forever, is beyond me.

I thought 'Merica was extremely litigious society.....
