Yeah that's a good point, that myself and probably many others are overlooking. You'd either have to go into the regular season with Finger or Lupul on the roster, then demote and hope there's someone to add, or if you need to do it in the offseason simply buy out Fingers contract and lose some cap space ($1.15M or so?) for two seasons. I could be wrong but I don't think Finger was a Burke signing, so there's no harm to his ego there.
