This is what makes hockey fun. No team is perfect, and everyone has its weaknesses or potential weaknesses. You can not guarantee a cup with Burke, who despite his good regular season play, has been bad in the playoffs. You can not guarantee a cup with Aebischer who has zero playoff experience and is taking over the no. 1 starting position for the first time. A GM has to take risks all the time.....If no risks were taken, no young talent would be developed..
