You can disliked Burke for a few things, But after Komisarek he didn't give out stupid long term deals that would hog tie the team going forward.
I was disappointed we didn't sign him, but at the time there was no sign of a number one centre in the organization. The majority of Leafs fans, and most likely managment, thought Kadri's ceiling was a one-way 2nd line centre in the NHL. Who knew he would take such a dramatic step this season. I still think Richards would be useful with the Leafs in a veteran top six centre role. If we did end up signing him at least management would have the amnesty option if he didn't work out, which is something NYR is probably considering.
