a team that has just traded their top 2 picks next year and their top pick the year after, does not have the luxury to justify dealing more vets for picks. They simply can't be in rebuild mode now, despite how much sense it makes for them.... they decided when they acquired Kessel that they were no longer a rebuilding team.

That's Burke's first big mistake so far as GM.
