As for the Versteeg trade to Philadelphia for a 2011 1st round pick (Percy) and the 3rd round pick, since he wasn't happy with his role in Toronto I say Burke was lucky to at least get the 1st round pick and at the time of that trade they didn't have one.
Too bad he didn't cash the pick in, how many players taken after Percy would have been better, or is Percy a better prospect than many think. Why?
