Hey, it ain't me saying it; it's renowned Globe and Mail sportswriter Eric Duhatschek right here.
But look at Burkies track record in Toronto! I think this is a brilliant move on the part of Flames management.
According to Duhatschek, the Flames are already eyeballing promising junior star Connor McDavid, who isn't eligible for the draft for two more years.
In other words, Flames hope to come in dead last for two years in a row to guarantee a shot at landing McDavid in the draft.
You da man, Burkie!
