Yeah Leafs fans are hoping Burke collects some of Toronto's bad contracts but it won't happen

I'm not sure why you would worry about that.
At any rate I'm sure he has bigger plans in mind, Reimer won't be at the top of his list

However, if Bernier doesn't run away with the starting job or platooning both goalies produces good results (a la St. Louis), then it's probably too earlier to make a move.

I could see him pushing for Kulemin/McClement/Fraser in the offseason if we let any of them walk. Same thing for Orr the following year (though he'll be getting up there in age by that time).
Why would any fan care what happens in regard to Orr, he's a run-of -the-mill player, highly replaceable in free agency

I doubt Burke will have much interest

How on earth do you possibly know that? Feasters last three drafts outside of the Jankowski pick were very very good. He has also led a team to a cup, they are doing this in tandem and Burke is an advisor they are doing a proper rebuild. I know a foreign concept in leaf land but that's what is going to happen. They have some nice pieces already, the fans know hockey and will be patient.

Edmonton on the other hand would be a perfect fit for all three parties.

Calgary already has an abundance of smallish puck moving defenders who are deserving of playing time, and fit the structure of this team better as they are significantly cheaper and younger (Brodie, Russell, Cundari etc..) - Strike three

The only possible way that Calgary would have an interest in acquiring Liles would be in a deal in which they receive additional assets for the cap relief the leafs would free up.

Franson on the other hand would make considerably more sense in terms of a player he may potentially target.
Burke also had plenty of offensive d-men when he dealt and signed Liles. Plenty in the system as well. Brian has his mancrushes on certain players and it's no coincidence that the same players seem to pop up whenever Burke changes postal codes. I don't think anyone will take Liles but if anyone, my first guess would be Burke.

Given the bind the leafs are in this is actually a very viable scenario, it would leave them enough money to sign Franson and replace Kadri with a very similar player.

Kadri, Reimer and Liles for Baertschi, Cammalleri and Macdonald?

Horrible trade. The Leafs are in no bind whatsoever. As RFA's, Kadri and Franson have no leverage, and will sign eventually. We have a patient GM, unfortunately, fans, and the press are less so.

And Feaster loved Jankowski and consider him the best , maybe a swap would work .

No we won't move Baertschi for practically anything right now, I love Kadri and would really like to add him to the team but not at the cost of Sven.

And most Leafs fans feel the same about Kadri ...

I don't know about Kadi having no leverage. Having Bozak and Bolland as your top 2 centers is pretty good leverage.

False.

Overseas is one alternative.

If both of them sign offer sheets adding up to $7M or even $6.6M ($3.3M each), it would put the Leafs in a bind with only 3 weeks left to shed salary.

And how many Canadian/American born players would rather sign in Europe than play here on a bridge contract? the KHL threat is just a bluff, and a bad one at that. I also doubt Burke would do something like that with his buddy Nonis running things in Toronto and the whole Kevin Lowe situation.

aaaaaaand how many teams have the cap to do so?

aaaaaaand how many times has an RFA been signed to an offer sheet?

Overseas isn't a real alternative. Perhaps if they were European...

Kadri and Franson have no leverage.

Burke/Feaster may try and acquire a project type player from the Leafs but nobody substantial.
