Brian Burke, a former NHL general manager for teams such as the Anaheim Ducks, Vancouver Canucks, Maple Leafs, and Hartford Whalers, is renowned for his unwavering support of physicality in hockey, particularly in the form of fighting.

His time as a GM was marked by his emphasis on constructing teams that combined skill with the ability to stand their ground on the ice, exemplified by their robust style of play and determination to secure victories.
While the NHL has shifted toward a more skill-focused game, favoring smaller, agile players, Burke's viewpoint remains rooted in the importance of fighting's role. An Instagram interview with Burke by NHL Breakers delves into his thoughts on the potential fading of fighting in the NHL.

Burke's steadfast advocacy for fighting's place in hockey has been a consistent theme. He firmly believes that fighting serves a purpose, particularly as a deterrent in scenarios where rookies or star players could be exploited. Amid the league's heightened focus on scoring and assists, Burke contends that fighting acts as a safeguard against the potential misuse of players primarily valued for their offensive prowess.
As the debate on fighting's role in the NHL continues, Burke's unwavering stance highlights its enduring significance. While the sport's landscape evolves, fighting's presence remains a captivating dimension, entrenched within the ever-changing fabric of hockey.
