Two totally different situations, doesn't mean Burke's going to throw in top assets just to fill a hole for the short term. He's already stated that
You think Luongo is short term?

With Burke's luck at landing goaltenders ... I doubt this is short term.


He was the Leafs' leading scorer in the 196364, 196667 and 196970 seasons, and the team's top goal scorer in 197071 and 197273. Keon was considered one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, and one of the best defensive forwards of his era.[3] He would usually play against the opposing team's top centre, and developed a reputation for neutralizing some of the league's top scorers. In 197071, he scored eight shorthanded goals, setting an NHL record.
