Woywitka (by way of Comrie), Seidenberg and picks for Burke, and Branko?

That is, a guy who could be your #1 goalie by playoff time, and a solid replacement on RW for Williams? For no one off of your NHL roster? For a team this close to Cup contention?

Can you say "no brainer"?????

Most fans would kill to have a GM and owner who are aggressively going for it. Instead some Philly fans criticize this because it may imperil the team "down the road"? Yikes!

If you don't want a serious Cup contending team, would you mind giving it over to a city and fans who do? :p

Adding: Not in love with Burke, but he is a clear upgrade over Hackett, and a potential alternative to Esche, should R.E. falter.
