I keep seeing posts alluding to this. What exactly failed? Burke or the Flyers?
They picked him up late in the year after the Stanley Cup finals choking, right? Didn't resign him and he's done well in Phoenix. Did he play somewhere else before Phoenix?
Just doesn't seem like he got much of a chance in Philly and yet I keep seeing "We already had him once" and "That experiment failed" or some other statement saying he didn't work out here.
I'm not advocating a trade for him, I just would like this point clarified in case I missed something.
