He's up there with some of the worst free wallets in Leafs history. I think him and the 6'5" powerhouse Brayden Irwin are fighting for top spot on the list.
I'm amazed you can have such a strong opinion of him already.

I also think it should be pointed out that the idea of a "free wallet" has been overblown. Perhaps Burke's fault, but this fanbase has its ways of extrapolating...

NHL teams sign college players every season. I don't have the exact numbers, but I suspect their success rate is somewhere along the lines of a mid/late round draft pick. Their success or failure should be treated with a shrug, not shaking fists.
