Burke couldn't get Schenn, but i am sure he never really thought that Schenn would still be available when it got to his pick anyway. So he would have had other options in mind, i highly doubt he would have made a pick so high for the sole purpose to spite Murray.

No, I've seen this list posted a few times but it's slightly incorrect...we determined MPS was in the top 8 due to how long the name above Leblanc was (it had to be OEL or MPS 8th). 11th was Kassian.

Top 8 in no real order:
John Tavares
Victor Hedman
Matt Duchene
Evander Kane
Brayden Schenn
Jared Cowen
Magnus Paajarvi-Svensson
Oliver Ekman-Larsson
9-18:
9. Louis Leblanc
10. Ryan Ellis
11. Zack Kassian
12. Scott Glennie
13. Jordan Schroeder
14. John Moore
15. Dmitry Kulikov
16. Jacob Josefsson
17. Chris Kreider
18. Nazem Kadri

This was actually implied by professional analyst Pierre McGuire, which is BS. MsGuire didn't say any such thing outright, but his comment -- dialing up the drama as he usually does -- was something like, by drafting Kadri, "Brian Burke is telling Murray and the other GMs in the division that 'I'm coming to get you.'" If Brian Burke drafts kids just because a team in the division wants him, and not the best player the organization thinks is available, then Burke should not be an NHL GM.

I actually think it's the title/heading they list the first prospects under. The font looks darker and thicker than the listed names (and the "Acceptable" title is bolded), it might appear long because it's centre justified on the left half like how the "Acceptable" title appears centre justified on the right half, and the word looks to be on the same line as "Acceptable."

edit: looks like LOL beat me by a couple weeks

Burke wanted Schenn...he wasn't willing to pay the price. That's why he said the F word after the L.A.'s selection.

Then, Toronto was set to take Kadri. Murray came to talk to Burke because he wanted to move up to get Kadri. Burke said ''is that for the guy I'm thinking about''...or at least, something like that...and Murray said yes.

Not wanting to pass over Kadri, Burke made the selection...

Well he could very well have had Kadri and another close, and decided to go with Kadri. I never said that was the reason he did it, but just that it looked a little fishy considering his convo with Murray prior to the leafs drafting.

It's not fishy...like I said, they both wanted to get Kadri. If Ottawa would have said Cowen, Burke might have been willing to take the risk of trading down.


There you go...nothing fishy at all...
