Burke No #2 on Leafs list

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A very special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae.

Anaheim GM Brian Burke was interviewed during last night's game between Pittsburgh and Detroit - when asked about the alleged extension on the table from the Ducks, Burke first dismissed the question by saying the focus should be on the Stanley Cup, then reiterated that he liked the Ducks ownership. Burke was again non-committal, he likely had not yet heard that the most attractive potential GM in the NHL was now free to talk to Toronto about the vacant post.

Hazel Mae announced that she would be leaving NESN at the end of the month to pursue other opportunities. While speculation is that she might be considering ESPN - an anonymous source says that Mae will meet with Leafs' interim GM Cliff Fletcher next week to discuss the possibility of taking over her beloved Maple Leafs.

While there will undoubtedly be speculation that ESPN will talk to Hazel about opportunities there - Leaf Nation says "Come on back home Hazel - the Leafs need Hazel Karma at the ACC every night".
New England's loss will be Canada's gain - as it should be.
Back later with more - thanks for taking the time to check in.
Hazel, you're a champ.
I'm Out!
