Disagree all you want, Burke still thinks Reimer is the real deal and as a result won't be giving up major pieces for Luongo
Again, I disagree that Burke is banking on Reimer being the real deal. Obviously no one can read his mind but I'm trying to look at it objectively based on watching Reimer last season. For all the flack Burke takes from Canuck fans, I happen to think he's a competent GM. I'm fairly confident that while he has not given up on Reimer he will not roll the dice on a bounce back seaon.
The more I see the price going up for marginal young goalies like Bobrovsky the more optimistic I'm becoming that Vancouver gets a fair deal from Toronto for Luongo. To me, it looks like GM's are getting pretty desperate and that the pickings are slim.
