Brian Burke hasn't done it yet, but he still could pull out a hand grenade and demolish this team as it stands. Fletcher has done a good job in putting together an almost respectable squad, with more tradeable assets than last year. But having watched them for a few weeks, Burke probably wants to get bigger and meaner.
And let's face it, our big guys don't play so mean. Antopov, Ponikarovski and Stajan hardly strike fear into the opposition. With a third of the season done, he probably has a clear sense of who's got high trade value, who's a keeper, and who the dead-wood is.
In my mind, there is a core worth keeping, and if Burke is going to blow up the Leafs, these are the ones I would keep (Blake, Kaberle, Kubina contract nonsesne notwithstanding):
That's half the team, and only 2 players are from last year.
