If you want to argue that the team might be better in the future if we gives Burke an endless numbers of years to build that's fine but the same could be siad for JFJ could it not .

Let's be honest , it doesn't take a genuis to bottom out and draft elite prospects but it does take a complete idiot to bottom out aftter he's traded the picks .
**** happens. Noone expected the Leafs to bottom out that year with the additions in the offseason. At least we got a great player in return for that pick, who is still the best player in the deal by a fair margin (on a crappy team). Could have been a lot worse, we could have gotten another Toskala in return for 3 picks.

It's time to stop living in the past and look towards the future.
