But Burke gets all the credit in the world from Vancouver fans for nabbing us the Sedins.
I agree that getting the Sedins was a genius move by Burke. I liked him as a GM in Vancouver and liked many of his moves. I'm just surprised that he gets such a free pass in Toronto. A lot of fans seem to blame Wilson for their problems last year. And yet the GM who signed him, stuck with him and even extended him seems to get no criticism. Picking up a goalie this off season should also have been a top priority. And, it need not have been Luongo but clearly the team needs an upgrade.
