Comrie-for-Burke is far more likely from the Yotes' perspective, but I don't see the Flyers pulling the trigger on that one. Burke isn't enough of an upgrade on Esche to warrant swapping Comrie, 10 years his junior, for Burke.

I suspect that if Clarke looks to upgrade his goaltending he'll look for something more longterm than Burke. If Clarke feels he NEEDS to upgrade his goaltending, that's practically a definitive statement that he also believes Esche is not his goalie of the future. I'd look for a Biron, Fernandez, or Khabby deal before a Burke move.
Well put.
Most likely Manny if the Wild continue to slip.
