Looking back, why I have Tucker included there twice is baffling.

Belfour, Peca, Gill and Cujo I graciously bow out from, but Gerber (waiver pick up originally), Kolzig (traded for draft picks) and Steen (I swear he was moved by Burke) I thought were Burke moves, even if it was over his transition from Anaheim where he was in charge.

I didn't mean to start a bad mouthing Burke rant with the players listed, but only to point out he did have some contracts and players he mishandled, and surrendered, in building a new team, and that one (probably more) of these touted Burke acquired players will be moved here for Luongo.

I don't want to think anyone thinks I'm trying to be a Leafs expert compared to the actual fans.
No it's cool. Bold are Burke moves... and my memory is shaking on Wellwood.
