Getting rid of the Blake contract is solid (Toskala was expiring anyways), but I'm not exactly writing home about it.
Plus, Burke is talking about a "quick rebuild" when he has 6 mill invested in a backup G next year. I mean, if the Leafs decide to start a 5 year plan, then getting Phaneuf isn't a terrible start, but I still wonder about what exactly Burke is trying to do here.
