Furthermore, next year will be the next season unless by some miracle this season is saved. Even then, a shortened season makes dealing and picks of significance much more difficult.
I disagree that there are quality goalies open to Burke. And since you have no examples in mind then you cannot dispute this. The bottom line is Burke has this last year left on his contract. There is currently one very good goalie available. Burke has one of two options: trade for Luongo or live and die by Reimer/Scrivens. Also keep in mind Scriven can barely hold on to his starting job in AHL this year. Does not look like a guy who could effectively backup in the NHL currently.
