As much as people have been lamenting Burke and the players he's brought in, he's put us in a great position to be able to broker trades. We have some cap space, and good contracts for both welfare teams (Komisarek, Connolly) and rich teams (Gunnarsson, Bozak, Kulemin, Reimer).
Toronto doesn't need good players on good contracts?

It makes more sense to keep these guys so you can afford guys like Getzlaf/Perry.
