Living in Toronto, this is probably the scariest thing I could hear as a hockey fan. Burke constantly reiterates how there's a 5 year plan to not only get the team into the playoffs, but be a perennial Stanley Cup contender.

If Tampa wants a younger goalie with potential, than perhaps Harding would be an option for Yzerman to sign in free agency. There are many options out there for a goalie without giving up assets.
Nabokov and Vokoun would be great stop gap solutions. No thanks to Harding, who's been injury plagued most of his career and has shown that he can't be a good #1 in this league when given the reigns (since Backstrom's been out with injury).
