Gillis realizing this "desperation" factor exists in Toronto plays into is hand in terms of asking price than it does Leafs in terms of offering or expected purchase price.

TO is the most likely destination for Luo all things considered, only how dearly will it cost Leafs to acquire him the question, and if being desperate to do so plays into the final price.

Burke is not dealing from a position of strength here, and Gillis knows it. Patience is a virtue and perhaps waiting and seeing how Leafs seasons unfolds with inexperienced goalies in Toronto, might further benefit Gillis in his eventual return.
