"Everyone's being entirely unreasonable."

Dude, that's what happens when you want stuff other teams don't need to part with: They ask you to offer something unreasonable. Someone really wants my pick, I'd wait until I'm on the clock to get their most desperate offer. >>Brian Burke, him have twade twoubles. (h/t RudyKelly at BoC)

Listen, the way -- I won't even mention the name -- but the way he does his business is the polar opposite of the way I do things. I'm not going to sit on a soapbox, a grandstand, and announce any of my intentions.

"No one should view the goaltender competition to be over because DiPietro is hurt now. He has the competitive arrogance and athleticism to be a dominant player in a tournament like the Olympics. … He could be like Jim Craig was in 1980 and crank it up for 30 days and be the star of the tournament. DiPietro has that ability."

>>Brian Burke, U.S. Olympic team GM, on Rick DiPietro. Here's hoping he's healthy enough to crank it up for 30 days and then some.
