Keep in mind, Gillis has let it be known that he will sit on Luongo until the trade deadline if he has to. His built a team which has back to back president's trophies and a SCF appearance. His job is not in question.

Burke on the other hand, the same cannot be said about.

This has the potential to turn out ugly for Toronto if Burke feels pressured to pull the trigger on a deal to save his job/make the playoffs.

We'll see how it all unfolds.

But yeah, Komisarek is a no go. You can pretty much ignore anyone putting him in a proposal.
Has a playoff bound team ever made a trade for a starting goalie at the deadline?
