As cool as it was to see Bavasi rip into Dave Samson a year ago, right now the NHL is kicking MLB's ass.

Burke and Lowe have been at odds since the Oilers put forth a five-year, $21.25 million offer sheet to Group II restricted free agent Dustin Penner last summer - a contract that the Ducks did not match and sent Penner to Edmonton.

"If I had run my team into the sewer like that I wouldn't throw a grenade at the other 29 teams and my own indirectly," said Burke before the start of last season. "So I have no intention of speaking to him anytime soon."

Apparently Lowe finally had enough. In a candid interview, the Oilers' GM railed against Burke calling him a 'moron' and a 'media-junkie'.

...

"Where do I begin?," started Lowe. "He's a moron, first of all. Secondly, he really believes that any news for the NHL is good news. Thirdly, he loves the limelight and I don't think anyone in hockey will dispute that. Lastly, he's in a pathetic hockey market where they can't get on any page of the newspaper let alone the front page of the sports, so any of this stuff carries on."
