Earlier this week I posted about Brian Burke's apparently contradictory quotes about NTCs. On the one hand he says he won't give them out. On the other hand, he says it's important that free agents know he honors them.
It didn't make sense. Burke was either backtracking, confused, or lying. Or maybe, just maybe, he was hiding something.
So I asked him about it.
It's a long story, but I managed to get the opportunity to question Burke directly, with some help from Bloge Salming. The entire thing was captured on film.
The confrontation was heated, revealing, and also strangely familiar. Have a look.
So now we know. God help us all.
