Maybe Burke brings in some good players this summer, or next season.

Just a note to help you sleep at night, get over the Kessel trade. It's done, over, can't be re-done. Pretty much every other significnat trade Burke pulled off will help this team going forward. I'm sure if you were asked in the summer of 2009 if the Leafs would finish 2nd overall in the upcoming season, you would have said no chance. For this exact reason, Burke made the Kessel trade. I don't fault him for trying to improve his team.

It's pretty easy being an armchair GM when you have hindsight on your side.
