Burke gave TIM CONNALLY a 2-year UFA deal that is $4.75 million a year, which is more than Antropov and he is obviously WAY less productive center.
So really, if the goal was making the playoffs the last couple years, and Antropov was willing to take a 4 year deal at only $4 million per...clearly Burke should have just resigned him. Considering he was never able to replace him, and the centers he brought in, Bozak, Lombardi, and Connally, were all worse (and Lombardi and Connally were similar cap hits). Connally and Antropov are both UFA after this year.
I never said trading Antropov was an amazing feat, I was replying to the other poster specifically pointing out those two trades. Don't that stop you from rambling on though.
