Brian Burke is back in hockey and that's great news for NHL fans everywhere.

The bold, impatient and opinionated former general manager of the Hartford Whalers, Vancouver Canucks Anaheim Ducks and Toronto Maple Leafs was formally introduced as the new President of Hockey Operations with the Calgary Flames on Thursday.

Jay Feaster will remain in his role as general manager and work as a team with Burke to help the Flames undergo a successful rebuild after several mediocre seasons, which has resulted in a four-year playoff drought.

Burke doesn't have much to work with in Calgary. In fact, a strong argument could be made that he had many more valuable assets to work with in Toronto when he was hired by the Original Six club in 2008.

This is going to be a meticulous and lengthy rebuild with the Flames, and there are many areas for Burke to address when he gets to work.

Let's look at a prioritized to-do list of objectives for him to accomplish over the next three years.
