There's no doubt that he struggled last year before he was dealt but his first few years were great. At the very least I'd have expected some improvement. He's still in his early 20s. But instead, he's worse than ever.

He's another guy I thought would bounce back. Again, he's worse than ever.

Not exactly Brodeur, but again... I thought he'd be better than he's been.

Kessel is pretty much, Kessel. I always thought he was who he is now. If not for Savards sweet passes, he never would had gotten the totals he did in Boston, IMO.
I thought both guys would be better but with Kessel i wouldn't have made that deal either. He can be part of a winning team but he's not the kind of player that you build your foundation around.

Anyways, Burke got the worst out of each one of those players. I guess it's payback for the ridiculous luck he had in Anaheim.

Be fair, he got them the Sedins and I think he brought in Luongo too didn't he?

Totally agree. And you forgot Selanne who inexplicably turned back into a 50 goal scorer after years of suckage.

He certainly hasn't looked good in TO.
