I also find it funny that you feel a "combo" that consists of our 1st, our top NHL ready player and MORE not astonishing. Once again, it comes down to what a team can offer....not what Gillis wants. Yes, Gillis has Luongo, but there is no law which states Burke MUST trade for him.
Protect it if need be, but it is definitely not off the table. If it is, good luck to Burke. In a full season I would have expected him to get his walking papers, but now he just might get away with another failing season. Maybe.
I fully expect Burke not to pay even that price. To covet his protected 1st and a dubious prospect in Kadri like they are integral to his organization, and he would be all the more idiotic for doing it. It wouldn't surprise me.
And a 1st and Kadri is not astonishing. I find it laughable that you think so. Only on HF is a crap shoot 1st rounder and a suspect prospect worth more than an elite goalie, aged or otherwise. _That's_ what is astonishing. Get some perspective LL.
