i just have to think that Burke who is great at trading (he had a bad one but overall his record is solid) would have gotten a better return for Nash.

in addition his work in the community in Columbus would really help spread the game there.
He would be awful in Columbus. They got a respected guy like John Davidson in there, the last thing Davidson is going to do is hire a clown like Burke. Burke's problem is that he cares about Burke first, the media second, the team third.

Hard to have a GM that does things like institute his own personal trade freezes and other things that offer no advantage other than to just call attention to himself

I could see Buffalo hiring him since I think Pegula probably blows it up if they don't win it this year and they are a team that wants headlines
