I thought his priorities this offseason were:

- Bring in a #1C
- Solidify goaltending situation
- Bring in size and toughness.

He hasn't addressed anything so far.
Nope those were areas he wanted to address for the last couple years. The answer is pretty simple depending on where we are in the season. Below is a handy reference.
1. Patience and wait for trades at draft to address the shortcomings
2. Patience and wait for UFA signing period
3. Patience and wait for trades before the season start
4. Patience and wait for the prospects to breakout this year
5. Patience and wait for trade deadline
6. Patience and wait for College UFA signings
7. Go to 1

Eventually something will work out. That said, Burke has tried - he signed some of the best undrafted Euro goalies (monster) that have not amounted to much, college UFA signings (Bozak) that are not really the solution, Connolly UFA signing last year who has been entirely underwhelming, drafted Biggs too add size in three or four years and hopefully Kadri/Colborne finally stick this year in the big club. Nothing really with high probability of success but he has tried.

Till than we are at 3 and so patience.
