That's what you are saying correct?

Burke is too stubborn, and too out to lunch on goaltenders. He always has been, and is likely to continue to be. The record is there for all to see. In fact, he might still be the Canucks GM if he hadn't been so oblivious and so poor on evaluating goaltenders.

You say it's price, I say it's Burke's perception of that price. Who's right? I point to his long track record of abysmal goaltending acquisitions (and by way of that his omissions), and you have... ? So I'm going to put it to you know, prove to me Burke is a good evaluator of goaltending, and the subsequent price point they entail. Go ahead. Make a case.
Fair enough bleach, your right and i'm wrong. The only reason Burke hasn't dealt Gardiner,our 1st and 2 other young pieces for a 33 year old goalie on a 10 year deal is because he is inept. It has nothing to do with the fact that it's just an overpayment. It has nothing to do with the fact that his team is not ready to make such a deal. I can't prove anything about Burke's goalie aquisitions here...he brought i Gigure...he got hurt. Again, if you thought Osgood or Roloson would have made your franchise...ok. Again, we need a are correct. We can not pay Gillis' price for Luongo...guess we will see who does.
