I think the horse has bolted on trading Burke. He's not posting the huge numbers he was a few years ago, he's old expensive and about to be a UFA.

I'm thinking a lesser deal, top end based around a weakish 2nd. I'd look for a team that wants a secure backup for a cup run and has too big a financial input to risk going with just one quality goalie. Philly and the Avs come to mind. Both teams with fairly untested starters, questionable depth on goal if there is an injury in the playoffs, and both have spent too much money to buy their cup to risk it on an injury to their starter. Philly could also use someone to replace Hackett if he continues to struggle. I could see Burke going for a second to one of these teams.
