My opinion of Burke took a severe hit when he failed to bring in _any_ steady option. Be it to pay the heavy price of the elite, or the failure to evaluate talent in FA or even on waivers. Basically, he failed in every capacity. That's his legacy. And it's a legacy verified through research.
Ok...didn't know i was dismissing anything. What shall i do? Thanks for the research i guess.Listen, i"d like Luongo here, but if the price stands at what Gillis has posted, than it doesn't matter how Burke values goaltenders because the price is to dam high. Why isn't Tallon an idiot, or Yzerman? These guys didn't pony up either. At some point you are going to have to admit that the price is to high. I'm not denying your right to feel the way you do about Burke, but don't try to convince anyone it's his stupborness or inability that had kept him from landing Luongo...it is the price. If any GM thought Luongo held that value...he would not be a Canuck anymore, clearly...they have all spoken by the fact he is still a Canuck.
