Maybe Burke does take everything into account. But then if he did, then I would have seriously question his decision making process for goal, based on what happened in VAN, and based on what has transpired to this point in TO. He just refuses to pay even a fair price on goalies, shown over his career -
and that's why Luongo is still in VAN
I won't argue you points about Burke while he was in Van...i can't, i don't have the facts. I am curious however, what star goalies were available to him then? What price did he refuse to pay?
As far as Burke not ponying up being the reason Luongo is still in Van, not entirely, it's because NO TEAM is willing to pay Gillis' price, not just TO.
