I was sort of thinking the same thing....

Wouldn't surprise me to see us take on a guy like character guy thats a bit older (maybe another Brad May?)

fair enough, forgot about the cond. pick, but i do agree a prospect like JVR would not be coming back, but none of this Shremp crap. Top prospect, in a way similar to the prospect that went to Pitts today. Gotta look at the cap too, pronger's contract was massive under the then cap.

Yea, the thing that got me is that Burke never said a "young guy that can play for us now" he just said "a guy that can play for us now" basically just meaning an NHL'er. Burke has also stated numerous times that he'd be willing to take on a salary for next season as long as it made some sense to the team.
