Ever since joining the Calgary Flames, Brian Burke’s hair has gotten as much notice as his search for HIMSELF a new general manager.

Now that’s in full bloom, Puck Daddy proudly counts down the Top 10 People And Things Brian Burke’s Hair Now Resembles:

The comics one. Not the “Age Of Ultron” one or the “Days Of Future Past” one.
