I think it was a bad trade knowing what was known at the time. I don't believe in making these kinds of trades when you should be rebuilding.
That being said, Kessel has been fantastic for the past couple of years and that trade looks a hell of a lot better now than it did even a year ago. Burke has certainly gotten at least some vindication here.
