07:46 AM ET 12.13 | After nearly 100 days on the job in Calgary, Brian Burke shook everything up, returning to the spotlight in the process. Burke likes to be front and centre. He likes to be seen and heard. He confirmed he will be the acting GM and that his search for Feaster's successor already has started. He also stated that he's prepared to be the GM full-time if a suitable replacement is not found. The search will start with Joe Nieuwendyk, who worked under Burke with the Toronto Maple Leafs before going out on his own to run the Dallas Stars for four playoff-less seasons, which resulted in his firing. The 47-year-old Nieuwendyk won the first of his three Stanley Cups as a player with the Flames back in 1989. Burke said one of his reasons for making the change now was because the Buffalo Sabres are amid their own GM search.
