No, absolutely not. That would give up his cards, so to speak. It would give Burke absolute certainty in his position. Frankly, I'm surprised you said this. It would seem obvious that Gillis would not give up his position by floating accurate details to Burke. What's more, it's potentially damaging to negotiations with EDM if it were to leak.

Also, if he ends up in FLA it doesn't mean Burke dropped the ball. If the cost is to high....it's just to high.


But we know that FLA is not pressured to get Luongo the same way TOR is. IMO, it will absolutely be an indictment on Burke if Luongo goes to FLA instead. The need is less there, yet they walk away with the asset? At a time when TOR is in great need of improvement in net? No, a trade to FLA would definitely be telling.
