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++.
Funny considering we're on pace to allow less goals this year.

Even if you were right, I'll take a top-10 scorer and a blue-chip defensive prospect in exchange for some defensive miscues, thank you.
