Let's say Burke had originally traded Tomas Kaberle & their 1st round pick 7th overall in 2009 for Phil Kessel, is Toronto a contender right now? It's a given they would have selected Seguin if they had the 2nd overall pick in 2010, however what are the chances they select Dougie Hamilton 9th overall in 2011? The reason I say that is some people say he should have been a top 5 pick that year, so why did he fall to 9th overall?
