Same goes for Burke.

Besides, does CuJo really give the Avs an inside edge to the Cup? I don't think so at all.
While I can see your point if Lacroix would be moving similar assets in a trade for Cujo or "Generic Goalie X," I think it would be a bad mistake to give up more in material assets just to avoid dealing with Detroit. While having to carry Cujo's salary *could* hurt Detroit's moves, Lacroix would also be weakening his own hand.
