If Burke was offered Krejci for Gunnar straight up he does that deal in a second.

Krejci is a much better player then Bozak. With that deal the Leafs would finally be decent down the middle with Krejci-Grabo-Bozak-McClement. Connolly could play on the wing or be traded. Either way he would be gone by the end of the year. Steckel could be traded for a bag of pucks.
