Now THIS is interesting. The Anaheim Ducks have called a press conference for 3:30 p.m. ET today, and apparently Brian Burke is expected to announce his resignation. From the National Post:
Brian Burke's path to Toronto might be a little clearer.We'll check back in on this after the newser, but yeah. The "consultant" thing is the right move, as everyone and their cat knows Burke has Leafs on the brain and likely checked out completely. Wonder how Ducks fans feel about their GM's abandonment?
As first reported by Fan 590 reporter Howard Berger, the Anaheim Ducks general manager is in the process of resigning from his position with the team. The Ducks have a news conference scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET Wednesday.
According to one report, Burke is expected to remain as a consultant through the end of the season, with Ducks senior vice president Bob Murray taking over as general manager.
