I have always used the fact that very few teams have made better use of assets and picks than Burke has by drafting. What I mean is that most teams that have kept all of their firsts for a long time don't average getting a player as good as Kessel for every 2 1sts they keep. Burke in 3 years has brought in Phaneuf and Kessel and added good young players like Kadri, Colbourne, and Gardiner. How many other teams have managed their picks to bring in that much talent? Not many. Personally I like what Burke has done. It's not as if he has wasted assets on 30 year old guys in a decline.
