The new CBA pretty much means that if Kessel wants to max is where he can do that (longer free agent contracts allowed to your own). Also, if you don't think Burke has turned over assets....maybe you should compare rosters from 4 years ago to now. Your points make it sound like he has a pile of veterans....he doesn't. I never said Luongo didn't make sense, i did say it didn't make sense to pay a premium.

Why does Kessel want to stay and be part of a rebuild? He's UFA in a year.

So Kessel would stay strictly based on the cash? Because it's not about his team competing then.

Burke has turned over the roster, for what? Players that compete now. Every move has been about trying to be better now.
