It’s a great honor to reach the finals, (but) what I like about winning the Prince of Wales Trophy is that it means I’ll coach in the All-Star Game next year.

A Pat Burns story about John Kordic

John Kordic was a problem with my team. When Jean Perron was the coach here, Kordic would come into the office, yelling and screaming about not playing enough.

He would threaten to slap Perron around, and would get his way. He tried that with me once. The first week I picked up an ash tray. I threw it at him. The ash tray missed by about half an inch. Crashed all over the wall. Kordic went out of the room saying, ‘This man is crazy.’
