Three reasons why this happened:
3. The teams that wanted him were over cap to have him or (refer to number one)
2. Brian Burke has a much less reputation among GM's than he does with fans, if you can believe that.
and the number one?
1. Why help Burke out? Burke is trying to cut cap. This always happens with him. He is only two years removed now from winning a Cup. Why do the guy a favour? So teams are stepping back and making him desperate. Now he has to drop a Cup winning, bonified top 4 Offensive defenceman with oodles of talent left in his career and get absolutely nothing in return except his precious cap space to bring back Selanne. No youth, no picks, no veterans in return, nothing.
Anyway, the only way Burke will get a return now is if a team like LA wants to pick him up, someone else wants him, LA gets first priority by waiver rules, and a team is willing to give Burke something to ensure it doesn't happen. Otherwise? Schneider will be a King.
