However we won't bail out Burke for the crap deals he has made. The player has to be serviceable i.e. Mcarthur or maybe JML.
Assuming Luongo finishes playng out his current contract he still has 10 years left. Bozak, Lombadri & Connolly have 1 year left and Komisarek has 2 years left. So forgetting about what Luongo's cap hit might be, the term of his deal still sucks and the Canucks could take on players with a lot less.
