I don't blame TB for asking for the moon for the 2nd overall pick because the top 2 picks are suppose to be franchise type players. The only way I see the Leafs getting the 2nd overall pick is if they take back some big contracts like Malone. But there would be other teams with cap space that might be interested.
How do you know that isn't what Burke is targeting in terms of trying to acquire the 2nd overall pick?

In terms of Colorado's pick, well let's just say that Burke would have a much easier time acquiring the 2nd overall pick than the 3rd overall.
