If the lingering stench of getting nothing in return for Ilya Bryzgalov last season has worn off, then Brian Burke needs another reminder.
In two consecutive seasons, Burke has managed to give away top NHL talent and get ZERO in return. People can discuss all of the backroom negotiations and who offered what, but it will NEVER change the fact that the Anaheim Ducks just got boned again by poor front office decisions.
This is a total mismanagement of the Salary Cap and off season signings and new contracts. There is no question that under the new CBA and Salary Cap that teams need to make difficult decisions and balance the process very delicately. However, I want to know of another team that has had to waive two players of the same calibre and impact as Bryzgalov and Schneider.
I am disgusted again.
