Imagine the Leafs with Seguin, and Hamilton?
I think Burke encapsulated his philosophy best when he said Leafs Nation will not tolerate a long rebuild, that was his fatal flaw.
Or, not trading for Luongo, I hear management wanted him.
Burke's trade for Lupul and Gardiner was another huge success.
Also, if the Leafs didn't have Kessel to begin with, they may have been even bad enough to secure the 1st overall pick, likely drafting Taylor Hall.
Anyways, let's remember that Brian Burke continued to work despite losing his son to a devastating car accident.
