Brian Burke on the Calgary Flames

Burke speaks about the Calgary Flames

“Successful teams are big. We’re not big enough, that’s one thing. And we’re not hostile enough for me. I don’t like playing flag football. I like teams that bang. I don’t like the way we play … we want black and blue hockey here. It’s what we do in Alberta. And that’s the first thing. We’ve got to be big and more truculent — you’re all waiting for the word, and there it is.”
