"can't say this team is worse" -- actually, it's quite easy to say that.

The main change in the Leafs game this year has been the defensive responsibility from the forwards. Where's that at here? Your bottom 6 is full of old vets that are slow and have almost no defensive game left. Getzlaf, Simmonds, Thornton, and Spezza would get eaten alive.

Also, where's the offence from the back end? There has to be someone passing the puck to the forwards so they can get a chance to create some offence. But you've traded away they're top puck moving d-man for nothing that helps.

Who's gonna kill penalties? Marner, Hyman, Mikheyev are the only forwards to do that. None of them are centres so they're not gonna have any puck control and the PK is gonna go down the drain. Spezza only takes faceoffs on the PK right now because he's been dominant on them. But then he quickly gets off for an actual PKer. They need guys who can stay out there from the draw and kill them.

This team wouldn't even make playoffs let alone win a round. Leave the team as it is for now. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. They're 1st in the league and all the fans wanna do is fix them? They're one of the top offences in the league. One of the top defensive teams in the league. Have a deadly powerplay. Have a PK that's greatly improved. Have depth at goaltending for once.

Leave it be. Don't mess it up.

Edit: It's also hilarious that you title this "Brian Burke" and then trade away Morgan Rielly when Burke was the guy who drafted Rielly and said they had him ranked #1 after only maybe a dozen or so games in his draft year. Comeon' now.

You’ve offered a bunch of junk.</div></div>

Didn't realize one stat from last year affected his play this year..ever heard of a fluke year? Players have bad ones and people talk about it, but if they have a good one all of a sudden that term is forgotten about.

That "bunch of junk" couldn't be a more ignorant comment. Dermott has taken massive progress this year and has shown why he could be a top 4 d-man (especially when the Rangers have been looking for one). Kerfoot has shown he's a good versatile player to move up and down the lineup, and play both centre and wing on a relatively cheap contract. Doesn't produce a ton but is a great fore checker with tons of speed. Abramov has been tearing up the QMJHL for 3 years now. Sure he's small and was drafted late, but you know who else tore apart the same league and is also small? Connor Garland. So Abramov is certainly not "junk". &amp; a 1st round pick is what you make of it, could be a draft steak at that point or a useful trade chip later down the road for another piece.

Hot take: Toronto doesn't make this deal or consider it. Zibanejad is a 3C on their team, that's not where he's best useful at and they wouldn't get top production outta him. They're not gonna give up 2 players that are very useful in their roles currently for that. They've been patient with Dermott for a reason, they love his game. One of the best skaters on the team and probably in the league. Kerfoot has proved valuable when injuries have happened on the wing and at centre. This also leaves them with not the appropriate amount of qualified forwards to leave exposed to Seattle unless they extend someone and risk losing them. All that for a guy that's gonna walk in less than a season and a half? They need a defensive 3C and there's guys out there that are better suited for that that will be cheaper. Phillip Danualt, Nick Bonino, Teddy Bleuger, Travis Zajac, etc will all be far cheaper and fit the role better.

Still comical that you continue to troll an entire team and call their players junk without actually knowing.
