About a million less than his cap hit now, while making no less money for the first 3 years. Someone will offer that up. Whether it is Burke or not. Then again, Alex Tanguay (fortunately) got a lot less then he expected, I think after a weak year in Montreal. And is having trouble living up to THAT.
Burke doesn't strike me as the silly type. He'll have a number/term that he won't exceed.
