Rex, I am not missing the point. If I were the GM of an NHL franchise, I would not take the risk of acquiring Sean Burke because of how injury prone he has become. Especially since he has not been playing in Europe, you have no idea of how his body would react to training camp. All it would take is one more hamstring pull and he would be lost for half of the shortened season.
I agree with you that there won't be a season, so it really isn't an issue.
