Apparently its because he still has 2 years left on the deal and they wanted to avoid paying a severance package. I still believe Burke was canned because Rogers/Bell came in and said, "we want to win now, acquire Luongo at all cost" and Burke said, "**** no, not at the price required to pay". MLSE now has their yes man, no matter how much the media will say otherwise. Welcome to Vancouver, Jake Gardiner
