MLCE wants Luongo, and Burke keeps blocking them by citing the horrible contract that Luongo carries with them. The new CBA alleviates that (to an extent), and Burke still blocks the deal (who wants a goalie that is signed until 42?!?!). MLSE says fine, if you won't do it, we'll bring in someone who will.
Alright, that makes sense. Can't fault either side. Burke staying firm in what he believes, and the organization citing why it makes more sense to trade for him now. Thanks.
