Gillis has to eventually blink since he can't keep both netminders come playoff time. More controversy.
So let's get this straight, Vancouver can't keep both because it might lead to problems in the future despite helping ensure they will make the playoffs (if one goalie goes down we're not screwed) but Toronto doesn't need either because they are happy to suck and miss the playoffs (despite a lot of discussion about Burke's leash in Toronto and guys getting mad that they haven't made the playoffs in forever)?
Is that basically what you are trying to say phrased another way?
