salaries are going to have to be grandfathered into the system... otherwise it won't work... and we don't know how a contract that is getting divided like burke's is going to count against the cap anyway... it isn't like we are really bankrolling a lot at the goalie position between him and Esche in the big scheme of things...
but a starting caliber goalie that is only going to cost someone 2.3 mil is a good commodity, and someone will bite on it at one point or another... potentially phoenix.
