i think if burke approached another GM and said "i got an elite superstar defenseman here so i want a 1st round pick and one of your top prospects" the phone would get hung up. then again this is all my opinion, maybe other GMs would throw their goodies at burke for the chance to get him but i would say it's not likely.
Why do assists not count in your world?
