You're right Burke doesn't _have_ to deal for Lu. He only has to if he wants complete the deal. If he's ok with what he has, he can stand pat. Completely agree.

There is a timeline on Burke though. Every game his team plays without Lu, is a game they're more apt to lose due to poor goaltending. So while Gillis sits and waits, Burke is losing games. Follow that along and you end up with a pressure point for Burke: Do a deal or risk getting fired at the end of the year. Where as for Gillis it's do a deal or risk a disgruntled Luongo? Which is worse?

Time is not on Burke's side here. In a very real sense.
At this point all we have to go on really, are gut feelings.

What does yours sqy?

I think we start the season...if there is one...with both Lou and Corey.
