Thank goodness he did buy time with those guys and let Kadri & Frattin develop under Eakins in the Marlies. We have ruined enough players by throwing them in the fire.
Players who develop under Burkes system and are signed by him holds 10 times the weight of being drafted. Anyone will tell you the easy part is being drafted compared to actually making the show and being signed.
If JFJ had signed them after he drafted them u might have a point...
