Burke passed on JJ to take Bobby Ryan and most everyone scoffed at him.

If he has a real hard on for some guy, it kind of makes me think there is no way in hell we should pass up on him.

Everyone is being unreasonable at the price of moving out of the top 5??

Really?

I'm just hoping that he's already talked to Waddell, because Atlanta was realistically Burke's only option to get into the top-5.

Whenever I see some of the things that Burke does/says, I always think of this little gem from years past about Burke's actions in Vancouver.

http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=121633

GMs are unreasonable to Burke because he is often known to give in to unreasonable offers.

This is so funny.....

Burke saying: Come on Dean you are being unreasonable...

Dean Saying: Brian I am not trading #5 overall to you for 2nd round pick next year

I think their is a good possibilty Burke and DL swing a deal. From the interviews I've seen with DL, to me he wants to move the pick.

Kings #5 and 3rd for Toronto's #7 and Kaberle. Then he packages one of the defensemen to Tampa for Lavacalier (Probably J. Johnson) and Frolov.

With the 7th pick they take Cowen.

Probably because you're missing the Brian Burke -> Anaheim Ducks connection.

Burke is being foolish, but I think there is truth in your post. Burke and Dean are good friends and there probably is interest in Kaberle especially if we swap picks and still end up with the 7th overall and get MSP or Cowan. Though, Schenn seems to be poised to become a really good player. I wouldn't want to be in the GM's seat right now...

Burke said months ago that he would do "whatever it takes" to trade up.

Now he's saying everyone is unreasonable.

You do the math.

I think your premise could be close but if they were able to get MSP. I think they are taking a forward in this draft.

I am just picturing Burkie throwing a massive temper tantrum in his office, and swinging his brief case around.

Oh boo ****ing hoo! Typical Burke acting like a spoiled kindergarten kid that wants a toy that another kid is playing with, even though there's a hundred of other toys in the toy box.

sorry but we aren't moving down a pick so stop speculating. If Burke wants Schenn so badly, he would have to give up a valuable asset on the team.

Weird, now all of a sudden the Leafs have an offer on the table for Kaberle that they are seriously considering. Maybe all of his whining paid off today.

I hope it's Atlanta offering the #4 pick.....then Kane is all ours!!!!

Kaberle is not worth a top 10 pick

Ya well I'm pretty sure any offer Burke is considering will have to do with him moving up in the draft. It doesn't say the trade was Kaberle straight up for a top 10 pick, all it said was it involves Kaberle

Rumours all over Canada radio that the offer is Kaberle for #5 then TOR packaging #5+7 for #1.

I think Kaberle has become VERY underrated around here but wouldn't like that deal. The people saying its not fair value wise are idiotic at least imho but that deal would irritate me quite a bit. Tomorrow can't come fast enough so that all these rumours stop.

Burke was perhaps more lucky than good in winning the Stanley Cup so fast with the Ducks. That's what a few of us will argue at least. Good deals he made magically turned into great deals, in such a fortunate and fast way that it was unanticipated by anyone, and Burke rode that wave to a Cup for the (around here) hated Ducks.

I think Burke's used up his quote-unquote "elite-GM" karma for a good long time. Now let him suffer for awhile I say.

Also I think everyone here is fed up with every Tom Dick and Harry NHL fan pestering Kings fans with proposal after proposal of a bunch of crumbs and barely-warm leftovers for the #5 overall.

At this point there's nothing I'd like more than to see the Kings keep the pick, take Schenn and the camera immediately cut to Burke's face.

Kaberle for the #5 straight? Forget it.

I was hoping if anything that Lombardi would drag Burke across the hot coals for his quest to unite the Schenn brothers and extract Kaberle out of him just to move up from #7 to #5.

Burke needs to get to at least 4 for Schenn. I don't see them jumping to 1.
