I agree with that. I've been highly critcial of the Kessel deal but if you look at Gardiner and Rielly along with Phaneuf, Gunner and the other leaf defencemen you can see a strong blueline starting to take shape in a couple of more years. IMO, a strong goalie in net could see the Leafs surprise some people as soon as next year. I agree with you that Burke needs to be able to acquire Luongo without giving up one of the real key pieces. It seems to me that there are probably a combination of assets that could get the deal done.
