Burke might as well be playing a fictional character who attracts a certain audience. If he were to broaden his horizons and start zeking out with stats, it would defeat the purpose of why he was hired.

the fact that some fans hate Burke, just adds to his network appeal. Outrage is a better response than “meh”.

Being a reasonable level headed media guy would be boring as ****. I'd just sit there flipping coins as my analysis for every game. "Shit happens"

Burke does have a great broadcasting personality even if I think his opinions are crap. Someone like Pierre Mcguire knows his shit, but is a disaster in an actual conversation and is incredibly awkward.

an underrated storyline going into these playoffs will be the LF05 vs preston battle. should be a doozy!
2005 searching for reasons for why they lost: Leafs lost because they didn't throw enough body checks

Me: nah they outplayed them significantly and just got unlucky

2005: Nylander lost us the game
Preston: Nylander had 15 shot attempts and a 88 GF% and was clearly our best player.
2005: Oh yeah, why did we lose then?
Preston: Well, Freddy let in 6 goals on 12 shots.
2005: You can't blame the goalie, some of those shots were hard!

It would help your cause if I ever lamented a lack of "body checks" as a reason for any Leafs loss.
