See, this is what I mean. People in the West has no clue what they're talking about when it comes to Burke.

EDIT: I will also say that there were lots of signings Burke made -- like Acouin, Fraser, Crabb, all of which are playing key roles on their respective teams, and Fraser leads the league in +/- playing big minutes for us -- when people bashed Burke for supposedly only targeting grinders. Now look.
He is probably referencing the Luke Schenn and Tyler Biggs draft selections.
