All Burke needs to do is make it in, play hard and go out in the first round, everyone in TO will be happy.
Plus I have this feeling that Burke will wait until some team gets in injury trouble on defence and add a top 6 forward for a defencemen and/or combination of players. He has the depth at defence to make a deal.
