I'm sure when the rumours started in December, any GM with a serious offer mentioned it to Burke. We also don't know who Burke talked to right before the trade went down to see if there was anything better.

That still doesn't mean he was shopped, especially not when Burke made that quote.

It's not just

"Hey I got a player"
"I got a player too"
"Let's trade"
*Hangs up*

There is a process that you clearly don't understand.

Letting everyone in the entire industry know a player is available <> shopping player.

He confirms and denies in the same sentence.


Desjardins estimates that about 40% of the game is captured by Corsi analysis.
