1) if burke wasnt interested in mike richards/carter who are both in their mid 20s with their 10 year deals i cant see him even looking at vinny at his 10 year deal at 30 years old with and extra $2 million cap hit to go along with it as well.

2) if burke did trade for vinny then it would almost certainly be komisarek + lombardi going back to tampa. the value isnt in the player, the value is in the ~$60 million which will allow them to keep stamkos and dress a competitive lineup.

3) tampa has the cap space, the question is whether the actually are going to use it. as per capgeek tampa has $15 million in cap space. the need to sign stamkos, percell, and another forward or two. if they give stamkos the same deal vinny got then they would have over $7million for percell and a few other forwards. the only issue is that it would require them to spend to the cap. im not sure if tampa is willing/able to do so.
