Brian Burke is now the President of Hockey Operations for the Calgary Flames jerseys. The move was announced by the Calgary Flames jerseys in a press conference held on Thursday afternoon, per Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun.But before jumping to conclusions about why Burke is bad news for Feaster, fans need to put two and two together about why he won’t do any good for the Flames jerseys.Desperate Times Do Not Call for Desperate MeasuresTo initiate a rebuild in today’s NHL, the base of the team is usually scrapped in favor of draft picks and prospects. The Flames jerseys will be starting from scratch this year, as their long time captain was traded last year and signed with the Bruins jerseys for the 2013 14 season.The Flames jerseys will also be without long time starting goaltender , who apparently retired this offseason,according to the Flames jerseys’ website, but as of September 4, Scott Cruickshank of the Calgary Herald reported that there was still no final decision. Cruickshank quoted Jay Feaster as saying that “we’ll have a resolution before the start of camp” [regarding Kiprusoff].As the Flames jerseys are in trouble in terms of player personnel for this upcoming season, bringing in Burke may seem like an intelligent move.Unfortunately, this move actually screams “desperate” to anyone who has been following hockey over the past decade.Inheritor Not a BuilderWhile Brian Burke won a Stanley Cup in 2007 with the Anaheim Ducks jerseys, the fact remains that he inherited not built a winner.With Burke’s one success comes the rest of his failures and stepping down from positions.Burke has been a GM for the Hartford Whalers, Vancouver Canucks jerseys, Anaheim Ducks jerseys and Toronto Maple Leafs jerseys. In each of those positions, Burke either resigned after a year or two, cheap jerseys did not have his contract renewed or was fired.Although Burke essentially built the modern day Vancouver Canucks jerseys by selecting the Sedin twins in 1999, he ultimately did not get to see their selections come to fruition as he wasn’t brought back after the 2003 04 season.The Flames jerseys Can’t Get Any WorseAlthough the Flames jerseys weren’t the worst team in the NHL last season, they probably couldn’t get any worse in terms of talent on the team currently.It wouldn’t be a stretch then to say that any kind of moves that happen under the Burke era in Calgary will reflect well on Burke for having them being made and worse on Jay Feaster for not making them before.Burke has attained this new role at an ideal time for himself, but not necessarily for the Flames jerseys and Jay Feaster.Brian Burke the BabysitterIn the press conference announcing his position with the Flames jerseys, via Wes Gilbertson, Calgary Sun,Burke acknowledged his new role by saying that “Jay is going to be the general manager of this team . He is going to be in charge, but with my guidance.”He later went on to say that “I know people think I need to be driving the bus all the time. I’m actually a very good teammate, too.”But is Burke taking on this newly created position more as a “teammate” position? Some of his comments didn’t make it seem like it.If Burke is actually here to be Feaster’s boss, then how long will the rope be for Feaster?Although the Flames jerseys are in the middle of a rebuild, some GMs around the league have been fired in the middle of a rebuild.A Nonsensical DecisionFans, management and others often forget that while Brian Burke has won a ring, Jay Feaster has a Cup ring too. Feaster’s actually came with the Tampa Bay Lightning jerseys in 2004 in a non traditional hockey market.If Burke’s place with the Flames jerseys really is in a backseat kind of role, it will be an awkward transition to say the least.
