Sources: Brian Burke Will Be Out As GM Of USA Hockey

Brian Burke "will not be Team USA's GM" for the '14 Sochi Games, according to sources cited by Toronto-based CJCL-AM's Greg Brady on his Twitter feed (TWITTER.com, 5/23). The move "shouldn't come as a massive surprise as USA Hockey was believed to want a GM who was currently working in that capacity in the NHL" (CBSSPORTS.com, 5/23). Predators GM David Poile is a "strong candidate" to replace Burke, while Penguins GM Ray Shero "could be considered the front-runner" (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 5/23).
