Look at Marty, he's forty and he just resigned because he can still do it is he as good as he was, probably not...but he's still a damn good goalie.
I don't doubt that Lou is going to be effective for a while but nobody can predict when he is going to fall off. That fear is real and legit, but not worth worrying about if you are Burke IMO. If he does not improve his goaltending I don't think he'll have a job in 12 months.
