If Burke moved him it would truly be one of the most shocking developments that has taken place in my life of following sports. And on top of that, the package that Rangers fans would want to give up would be a fraction of what Burke would need to acquire for him to save face and more importantly, not have to fear for the safety of his family.
couldnt have put it much better, I think world war three would start on these boards and in the streets of Toronto if burke was to deal kessel to the Rangers (which would probably be bare minimum compared to the price burkie had to pay to acquire him - 2 1st + 2nd). He might as well just purchase a plane ticket in advance out of Toronto if those were ever his intentions.

More realistic players that may be traded are players like versteeg, kulemin, grabovski (having a great season, only traded if the price is right), beachemin, komisarek, ledba, gunnarson, kaberle.
