They had the chance to bargain with him by trading a pick, like PIT did (a 7th rounder no less). I may be recalling this wrong, but it was rumoured that Burke balked at the notion. How could this be? Vokoun's motivations being his own, you would think Burke would at least try to negotiate with him if that's what _he_ wanted... correct?
So basically, we've demonstrated that Toronto doesn't like to trade picks for veteran goaltending.
