I'm saying based on his history at failed acquisitions in net, he can't properly evaluate goalies. What do you have to say that he can?

That's why the organization has Nonis. Nonis has made deals for the Leafs, and Burke gives him credit for the deals. With Gillis and Burke not being the best friends, I won't be surprised if it is Nonis that is doing most of the talking and negotiations.

A Goalie like Luongo is also a lot safer of a bet than signing a guy like Gustavsson, even though Burke hope for the same success he had with Hiller.

The Leafs will use the 'brain trust' to make a collective deal, if one is made of course.
