The Brian Burke Don't Do Something Stupid Deadline

ATLANTA, GA - FEBRUARY 27: Ron Hainsey #6 of the Atlanta Thrashers removes the puck from the goal after goaltender Chris Mason #50 allowed a goal by Phil Kessel #81 of the Toronto Maple Leafs at Philips Arena on February 27, 2011 in Atlanta, Georgia. (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)

Burke can afford to relax - David Shoalts

Brian Burke’s biggest concern on deadline day, as he freely admits, is not pulling off that big trade. It is to avoid doing something stupid.

Amen to that. We all know what today is, so sit down, strap in, and get ready for a bumpy ride.

Editor's Note: Today could be a busy day. We'll get overflow threads up as needed. We don't need fanshots for every trade. We'll post discussion threads if any moves are made by the Leafs as well as analysis once we have a chance to think of it. Here's to what will hopefully be a hectic day!
