Burke builds a beauty

Eric Zullo, Woodbridge, N.J.

I would just like to thank Brian Burke for putting together a great Team USA for the Olympics.

It just shows how much of a genius he really is.

He has taken over numerous NHL teams and transformed them into great franchises. This time, he took a Team USA that was on the outside looking in and made the decision to go younger.

He chose the right guys for the job, including coach Ron Wilson. I've been a hockey fan all of my life (20 years) and had so much support for and pride in my team.

I'm very much looking forward the next Winter Olympics to see what Team USA has in store (assuming NHL players are still in the tournament).

Thank you, Mr. Burke and all of Team USA's players and staff, for a great tournament and better yet, the effort put forth to show the world that hockey is thriving in the good ol' USA!
