I'll agree to disagree. I went over the assets we had in another thread a while ago it wasn't that dire. Cap space was an issue I'll give you that and depth past Pronger/Nieds/Beauch on the backend was also an issue. Burke left 3 awesome pieces up front in Getz/Perry/Ryan with a prime Kunitz all under contract, you should never have to undergo a rebuild with those pieces in place.

As for the expiring contracts, they were all quality assets that Murray was able to use to generate prospects/picks from (Bonino being the best example of someone we received).
