I'm glad Burke stood pat and didn't dismantle the team. Trading 4 players for first rounders would have set us back more than forward. Given the first round picks offered, my guess is it likely included Grabo/Kulemin/Macarthur/Schenn/Gunnarsson/Bozak . These players can still be traded in the future just as easily, probably in packages that would return greater than late firsts individually. Also, it didnt totally destroy our chances of making the playoffs next year.

Not to mention, hindsight sure is great. If i recall, at the deadline, we had just slipped out of 8th spot. There was plenty of time to turn it around. and how can any one possibly say they didn't want them to? Its easy to look back and say we should have done such and such, but at the time a tough call had to be made, the right call. Try and make the playoffs.
