Gotta love Phaneuf's 0 goals, 4pts and -1 rating in 15 games too. On pace for less than 30 points on the year. When are you going to make a thread about him not being worth 6.5 million?
I think the Boston deal is pretty brutal, Kessel is earning his keep, but losing a potential top 2 pick and top 10 the following year is not very shrewd.

That being said I think Burke on balance has done very well with the disaster of a team JFJ/Fletcher left him.

His team has become much younger an is beginning to show it's competitive. I'd argue he hasn't lost a trade either, with some of them clear wins even at this early stage.

Whereas under Murray's tenure we've only become older and less competitive. Can someone point me to a trade Murray's made we've actually clearly won?
