So you feel JFJ having a HHOF player isn't worth much? Kaberle in his prime as well. Look, there's no doubt BB made promises and did not keep them but comparing JFJ to Burke by that use isnt exactly fair. Maybe if JFJ didn't trade Rask for Raycroft Burke would've had a competent goalie to actually make playoffs with. I'm not a leafs fan and I think burke has left a lot to be desired but numbers aren't everything.
