But hey, if you know how to acquire a Lucic or Clowe or Backes, please let Burke know your great ideas
Its one of the reason GM Chiarelli offered more $$ and chose to keep Lucic and preferred to deal Kessel instead when he needed to decide which player had more value to his team and occupy cap space.
He understood the importance of that aspect of grit that extends beyond just goals scored and was a key to building a winning championship team.
Signature: There is no greater demonstration of Fan patience then to suggest to "Play the Kids " and be willing to accept the consequences of those actions..
