The benefit is that without a CBA Burke cannot do anything stupid. I.E trading 1sts/prospects.
We get Connolly/Lombo/Stekel off the books, Another year off Komi which may make him more attractive to move when Hockey resumes. And our prospects get a full year to just play AHL hockey. Without the pressure of yo-yoing up and down to the big club. If we get another lottery pick out of it - it will be a dream come true.
Burke would have succeeded at rebuilding through the draft despite his every attempt not to LOL.
(If only we had hung on to Sequin/Hamilton/Rask)
Sure would've liked to have traded MacA for that 1st rounder now!
