A 35 year old Kaberle returned a 1st and a prospect. Luongo doesn't deserve as much? Give your head a shake.

Oh, and G&G signed Lu to such a deal knowing full well they were prepared to roll with him in the latter years of his career. It makes no difference what his age is now vs back then to this club's management team. Again, they signed him knowing full well the risks. If Burke thinks it's too much, he can walk. But I think he's got more common sense than that, believe it or not. you think the eventual Stanley Cup champions 1st is equal to ours?? There is a MASSIVE difference. Also, if you were only asking for the 1st and a B prospect i might be inclined....but you are not.

To the 2nd bolded, Burke will absolutely make the deal if he thinks it works, he won't pay a massive price.
