Brian Burke RANTS about Rangers

On a recent draft day preview show, Burke was asked to comment on the masterful job that Jeff Gorton has done rebuilding the Rangers. What ensued was a whining rant for the ages.

“Oh yeah my old job! Win the draft lottery twice, move up four times once and eleven times this time!” Brian Burke sarcastically added, “Yeah, that’s a great job.”
