I was always a big fan of Sean Burke, although he never really accomplished anything in terms of championships. He was the Marcel Dionne of goaltenders, if you will. Great talent, terrible teams to play with. As a result, he never was able to make a name for himself in the NHL playoffs. In fact, in 20 years in the bigs, he only had a chance to play in 37 playoff contests.
I became a big fan of Burke before he was a NHL goalie. He outplayed Andy Moog on the 1987-88 Canadian National Team that played in the Calgary Olympics. Canada's weak teams could never beat the Soviet "amateurs," but things looked really promising on Alberta ice that year. Backed almost solely by the goaltending, Canada was even picked to win gold by Sports Illustrated.
