Everyone has some luck.

Burke was set-up well in Anaheim but so was Bowman in Chicago (Kane, Toews, Keith), Shero in Pittsburgh (Malkin, Crosby, Fleury, LeTang) and Lombardi here (Kopitar, Quick, Brown). Burke was not blessed with elite talent to build around like those guys were.

And Phil Kessel is grossly underrated on HF because he plays for the Leafs. The Leafs have a ton of holes, #1 center is not one of them.

Although I will say, unless Burke evolves away from his obsession with toughness and playing goons like Lombardi did (which culminated in the firing of Murray) the Leafs won't go anywhere.
