I agree. If he makes no deal and they miss, he's gone. So yes there is pressure. But it's up to him how much that pressure should dictate his moves. I think it can go either way. Normally, I would say Burke balks at any big price, but this situation may force his hand
scary list for Burke, if he wants unchanged he'd better get Luongo. If he his not prepared to pay he might as well pull an Oilers and try for MacKinnon, Barkov or Jones. At least that way he's got something to show for sucking, maybe enough to save his job. He's got the cash to go after Getzlaf and Perry, those two plus MacKinnon/Barkov and they are set up front, then take a run at Luongo after the season assuming we still have him.
I know. I guess I just have a different definition of "Blue Chip". Is Reilly a can't miss star?
That's a way higher standard than
most people have. There would be lucky to be 10 of those at any time.
