Not here mock Burke, just pointing out that some of his moves in Toronto have been questionable and some harmed the future. I agree that currently and in the past the Oilers have been worse then the TML. Just an outsider pointing out a weird strategy by BB
Forgot Yakapov, honest mistake.

But in no way, shape or form is Whitney the same level as Phaneuf. He can't even stay healthy and it's been years since he's cracked 30 points... or Hartikenan as JVR (as you agree).
