The playoffs came with much controversy, though. The Ducks had players suspended in three of the four rounds, starting with [[Brad May]]'s suspension for two games in the series against the [[Minnesota Wild]] when he punched the Wild's [[Kim Johnsson]]. [[Chris Pronger]] was suspended for one game twice; once against the [[Detroit Red Wings]] for checking [[Tomas Holmstrom]] high, and then once more for elbowing [[Dean McAmmond]] of the [[Ottawa Senators]] in the [[2007 Stanley Cup Final|Finals]].

Neidermayer returned in December 07. As a result of this indecision Burke was active in the Free Agent market signing two veteran players in high scoring defenceman [[Mathieu Schneider]] and gritty forward [[Todd Bertuzzi]] to 2 year contracts to replace Niedermayer and Selanne if they were to retire. Later on, Oilers GM [[Kevin Lowe]] signed Dustin Penner to an offer sheet that would pay him 4.25 million a year over the next five. Burke called out Lowe, saying 'it was a classless move made by a desperate GM trying to save his job.' He did not match the offer. In return, the Ducks received the Oiler's 1st, 2nd and 3rd round draft picks. Later that summer he signed backup defenceman [[Joe DiPenta]] to a one year contract along with re-signing the gritty team leader [[Brad May]].
