A quick Trevor Linden story

A comical story about Brian Burke and Trevor Linden from the Orange County Register yesterday:
Burke remembers 1988 when Linden, son of a cattle farmer in Medicine Hat, Alberta, began his journey.

"He gets embarrassed when I tell this," Burke said, referring to the oft-quoted story about the Canucks' psychological, pre-draft testing.

Linden said he couldn't make it because he was needed on the farm.

Burke asked what his job was.

"When the cattle come into the pen I have to hold them down and pin them while they brand them and castrate them," Linden said.

"OK," Burke said, "You can skip the test."

Linden went on to pass tougher ones.
