Like say Milan Hejduk...........

I'm not saying that the Avs would, or even should, offer up Hejduk. I'm just saying that he would likely blow Gretz's socks off and he the Yotes would likely be able to afford him.
Hejduk for Burke? You think it would take Hejduk to 'blow Gretz's socks off'? If that is what it takes to make a deal, count of Phoenix losing him as a UFA in July. My guess is that as the season goes along, it will take less and less to blow Gretz's socks off. I believe the Avs will get an experience goalie before the playoffs...actually, Christmas is my prediction...and I have no objection to Burke. Just not at that price...
