Can I say I think Burke should be fired because he shouldve traded up one spot from Kadri to pick OEL?
Wouldn't be fair. Hindsight.
Fact is JFJ had a way better record than Burke in his time here, and a better scouting record too. None of Burkes picks have made the NHL. Many of JFJs have. And it is sad Im defending him...look at me...but really only to benchmark how worse Burke has been,
So it's fair to judge Burke using hindsight, but not JFJ?
He said he doesn't believe it should take five years and he'll do it sooner...certainly acted upon that idea by promptly sending the highest draft pick the Leafs have ever encountered out the door.
When the pick was traded it wasn't the "highest pick the leafs ever encountered". It was a first round pick, that simple.
