Welcome back to Anaheim, Brian Burke, part-time pro scout.
Commence everyone's freaking out, I'm sure. Generally speaking, it just means he's getting paid to see games and report back to the organization about them, about players, etc.
Word on the street: Burke wants to be a manager. I think this just gets him out of Toronto to allow him to begin his search again. The Samuelis doing a solid.
(Another word on the street: Perry's camp turned down a massive offer from us already. Like I said, he wants gone.)
