Though I think Burke has made it abundantly clear that he'll make that move only if it's under his own terms ("a price that makes sense") meaning he will not sacrifice any of his key prospects to make it happen.
That pretty much rules out Kadri, Rielly, Finn, Biggs, Percy, D'Amigo, Frattin, Colborne, Blacker and 1st round picks being included in any deals for Luongo.
Until Gillis is ready to cut the price to the levels Burke requires, the staring contest will go on for quite some time. Burke never makes moves out of desperation, we know that and quite honestly, I don't think they are all that desperate in the first place. There's no doubt a #1 goalie is ideal but they are confident in Reimer's ability and drive too.
Anyway, this all has been discussed at great length already. We'll just have to wait and see. Either way we're moving in the right direction.
