Burke said the exact same thing andthen traded for Kessel.
I really don't think Nonis is going to trade away the 1st this yr, Gardiner or Rielly for Lou. I think MLSE more had a problem with Burkes gruffness then the talent they have recently aquired. Big money corporations are also smart enough to look at the benefits of possible long term success over short term gain. I think Gillis has a better dance partner in Nonis then burke, but he won't be able to walk all over him.
