Sorry, but Burke didn't create this team out of nothing. The team is gifted with 7 draft picks every year, yes even if you were the GM the league would give you 7 draft picks.

Getting Phaneuf wasn't magic, they traded quite a few assets that were on the team for Phaneuf. And from what I read Nonis did a lot of the work on this deal. http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=413804

Schenn (Fletcher) begat van Riemsdyk.

Is Genesis 1:31 about Burke?

Lupul and Gardiner (what happened to him?) in my opinion are absolute steals that Burke did. Signing Beauchemin as UFA and then trading him back to the Ducks for a salary dump and prospect. Sometimes those salary dumps ...
You're right that it's difficult to separate the involvement Nonis had but the Phaneuf deal was grand ****ing larceny. Yes it was clear back then. It's even clearer now. We gave up nothing of value for him.
