1st. overall is to land your franchise players, failing that you expect a star player.
If a player is ranked 1st. overall he'll understand what the expectations are.
I'm guessing you'd trade the 1st. overall pick if the Leafs landed it?
Some of us treat it as Burke standing up for his prospects. I put this into the same category as when he was questioned about whether or not he'd do the Kessel trade again.
Others will take any excuse to bash Burke, even if it's a result him showing confidence in our best prospect.
Either way, I guess people hear what they want to hear, as long as it serves their agenda.
