#3. Burke doesn't seem interested in making a move for a pure rental, because his team isn't at that point yet.

#4. Philadelphia is probably a bit disappointed in JvR's development so far, and have a need for a blueliner -- something Toronto has a lot of.
5. Toronto needs to get bigger on the wings and develop more of a cycle game to compliment their speed game.

6. Burke was rumoured to be trying to hold out for a young roster player last year before he made the Versteeg trade for picks. Their is a strong chance JVR was that player.
