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.
Burke tried to tell us that Cloutier and Brochu (to be fair, he wanted Garth Snow, ooh) were the real deal too.

"The teamís major question mark was in net, where Dan Cloutier was unproven as a starting goaltender and no backup goalie was in place. At that fallís waiver draft, general manager Brian Burke addressed the backup goalie position, claiming minor-league veteran Martin Brochu, a decision that many questioned at the time. Why did Burke enter the season with an unproven backup behind an unproven starter?"

Does the bolded sound familiar, Leafs fans? Don't fall for Burke's lies about Reimer/Scrivens being the future. We've been there before. We're really not just making this up to make Lu sound better than he is. He will help your team immensely if you get him, more than Reimer/Scrivens ever can or will. But you gotta give to get.
