How so? Lupul and Smid were dealt for Pronger, you're going to fault Burke for that? Come on. Penner was offered a ******** contract and he's thus far not living up to it, can't blame Burke for taking the picks, which could end up being a lottery pick. Sure Burke could've tried to sign Penner beforehand, but then again, so could've Nonis with regards to Kesler. O'Brien landed a 1st round pick, not horrible. Perry and Kunitz are still with the team, one is signed long term and the other will likely soon be. Bryzgalov was a back-up goaltender set to be UFA, the most he likely could've landed was a 2nd round pick. As for Foster, 5th/6th d-man at best. Who cares?
