Signing eminger/boynton/foster some other pylon UFA d-men. Godawful.

The biggest one is honestly taking forever to fill that 2C spot. TAKING FOREVERRRRR and to this day we still havne't done that yet
There's a lot of hindsight going on there. You're looking at that deal knowing what you do now. It turned out to be a mistake, one he rectified, but it's not like it was obvious that Beauchemin was going to okay going forward.

I find it a bit odd that people are defending Burke's decision move Andy based on that slice of a season and torching Bob for doing the same with Beauch. These aren't easy decisions to make. Both of them were equally wrong.
