Burke on waivers/claimed by Kings

On re-entry waivers. Think this is a sign that SOME kind of move is coming?

I hope what happened is the Kings called the Lightning to ask them to put Sean Burke on re-entry waivers. The Kings get a goalie who sucks but still better than having a rookie out there and the Lightning get some extra cap space.

I have given up on a trade happening now, if it didn't happen right after waiving Affy and Karlsson I doubt it happens after waiving Burke.

yeah...trying to get rid of Burke and his salary. I don't see anything happening beyond that.

Which would be mutually beneficial. We'll scratch your guys' back now, if you scratch ours later. (In a future deal)

It's not like any significant move could come after this. It would only save the team between 300-400k.

I'd say both sides benefit from this pretty much equally.

Agreed. You have almost redeemed yourself from the Boyle comment of a few days ago.

And trust us, it couldn't be any worse than Cloutier, or the kids who we're never meant to be in the NHL in the first place.

You know what? I watch alot of Kings hockey and you MAY just have a point. It still remains to be seen though as far as I'm concerned.

If he's marginally better than the kids, he's miles better than Cloutier and that's worth it in my book.

Fukufuji.

Oh, and although it sucks for Burke and I hope he's okay (a sign that he should retire?) I found that kind of funny.

I just read the recap of the Kings/Coyotes game and found this out too...wow. What would be great is if Brust and Fukufuji were injured too...then they could bring Arturs Irbe out of retirement, or maybe trade for Bobby "the chief" taylor...

there is question as to whether he was injured or just exhausted. Nick Nickson, Kings radio play by play guy, on the post game show, did not allude to an injury, saying he was just hunched over as if exhausted, and that since Burke "couldn't remember the last time he had played a game" and had to endure the over 60 minute wait on the bench during the Robitaille ceremony, he may have just reached a point where he cramped up and couldn't go any further.
