There's a backstory about Dion that isn't really public and I can't post it on these boards without having the post removed. Rumors are that the Dion trade was literally a spur of the moment get this man out of here regardless of cost or loss.

Could the Flames have gotten more for him? Absolutely.

Burke had made it known that Dion was one of the players he really wanted for his team. The Flames knew this and Burke was the first GM they called.
