The trade worked out like an A for a salary dump.
But seanlinden still has a point. Beauchimen was the top leaf shutdown defender and losing Beauchimen has hurt the leaf GA no doubt. And the trade is especially poor that Schenn and Komisarek are underachieving after Burke gave them big contracts. I'd still do the trade but it cost the leafs a lot of turnovers and inability to clear the puck from the defensive zone.

Now if Burke managed to trade Komisarek for Gardiner and Lupul like wow A++.
