But if it's protected, how can it be a "Kessel crapstorm"?

If the exclusion of a protected 1st kills this deal from Burke's end, he deserves his walking papers at the end of the year. I cannot fathom him passing that up, while keeping the majority of his NHL roster intact for the purposes of competing now. It would be a massive blunder on his part IMO. The ghost of the Kessel trade be damned.
