Brian Burke

Goalie Drafter:

Simply Inexcusable

Since June 22, 1998, Burke has presided over 14 drafts as a General Manager - Burke's Drafted Goalies: 1 GP 0 Wins:

  • Vancouver - 54 Picks - 4 Goalies
  • Anaheim - 29 Picks - 4 Goalies
  • Toronto - 29 Picks - 1 Goalie

Strength down the middle is paramount in all professional sports.

Successful businesses demand Succession Planning .... Successful Hockey Teams require a supply of good young goalies.

Nine picks for 1 Game Played  is inexcusable, unless you are Brian Burke.
