Bye Bye Burke
Goaltender Sean Burke has officially retired.
For the most part, I liked him. Burke was one of the last stand-up goaltenders (in style, hopefully not character).
Looking back at his info, I got all warm and fuzzy about one of his teams and found a cool website: Hartford Whalers Hockey.com, which has some cool stuff and sparks my nostalgia for the Whale.
And hey! If the Canadiens can pick up the Expos Youppi as a mascot, why hasn't anyone grabbed Pucky?!?!? A damn shame, but I will remember the team and him fondly as I listen to the sweet sound of the Brass Bonanza.
Long live the Whale!
