Even if Howson stood strong, he could have brought Nash back and still would have likely been looking at lottery picks.

That's the leverage.

Those teams may not need Lu, but it's quite evident, especially in Toronto's case they severely need an upgrade.
Not really. Burke and Tallon have both been selling 'youth movement' and in the case of Tallon, he already has a playoff team. Burke on the other hand seems content with Reimer as his starting goalie and past history shows that he doesn't like signing players to long term deals.

Gillis has to eventually blink since he can't keep both netminders come playoff time. More controversy.
