The Vancouver Canucks had big expectations last season which were not met after falling meekly in the 2nd round of the playoffs.
However, despite some key subtractions to the lineup, the team has high hopes again for this coming year.
They’ve brought back their best offensive contributors in the twins, re-signed their top player long term in Luongo and have an excellent mix of veterans and youth to take a good run at a championship in the next few years.
The acquisition of Phil Kessel puts the stamp on the team that Burke has been looking for, and officially concludes the first year of Burke as General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs. With the new season starting very shortly, and no more moves likely to take place between now and then, perhaps it is time to look back at Burke’s work over the last year.
