By TSM

Long-time NHL executive, Brian Burke has seen and done it all in a lengthy NHL career. Together with Stephen Brunt, Burke shares his life long stories in a new book Burke’s Law.

Brian and Jonah talk about:

The four core values in the book:
Family & influences
Accountability
Work Ethic
Authenticity

Topics also discussed include:

Pierre McGuire- eating pizza with the owners
Kevin Weeks- faking an injury
Rogers and Bell as co-owners- board meetings
Owners’ interference, were they really just two hands on the wheel?
Mike Keenan
What the Florida Panthers wanted in trade with the Maple Leafs for Roberto Luongo, why he passed, and how it came up at an unexpected time.
The Ron Wilson relationship
Why Tony Gallagher Steve Simmons, Larry Brooks, and Al Strachan were collectively mentioned in the book
The Toronto media: tough or just volume?
Are the Maple Leafs Stanley Cup contenders

I highly recommend you get a copy of the book and I would listen to it if possible. I think it’s more colorful listening to Burke read his own book!

    I remember when Brunt wrote his Orr book, someone else (Strachan?) put out an autobiography around the same time. Brunt made the point that a biography tends to Be more honest and objective. 

    Something tells me this book doesn’t deal with Burke’s well known foibles and flaws.  Going back to his Vancouver days, there are many stories.
