Burke Rumor

Don Taylor said on Sportsnet that the Yotes have told Burke he will be gone to the Flyers, Avs or Rags over the weekend.

Yes, but the Rangers have a way of getting what they want.

Begging the question, why would they want another aging star? I cant think of a good reason.

I wonder how interested the Avs might be, especially with Sauve being horrible lately. But I've heard that the asking price is a top prospect. The Avs have already traded a lot of their prospects and I don't think they'd trade Ballard or even Sauve for him and Phoenix wouldn't want Sauve anyway. I wouldn't want the Flyers to get him. Hackett is enough of a drag on the payroll. Besides, even though inexperienced, Nittymaki has been real good in the two games he's played. If he takes the games against the bad teams, then maybe that will give Esche enough of a rest to be effective.

The only problem with that whole thing is that Esche is injured for 3 weeks. Nittymaki has been very good against teams like Washington and Atlanta (2 posts against him in that game), but can he handle the likes of NJ and the NYR each of whom the Flyers play soon? We will see.

The only reason i'd want him here is to be a backup, unless Esche falters late in the season and we need a real bonafide # 1

I'm pretty sure that the Sens will be in the Burke bidding now. We need insurance in nets now...

I don't see the Rangers being one of the teams. I don't Burke being enough of an upgrade (if at all) over Dunham to warrant giving up a player currently on the roster or a good prospect. I can see Colorado wanting some insurance, but does Phoenix really want to trade in conferance? That leaves either Philly, or maybe Ottawa if they join the bidding late. I bet it's Philly. With Esche and Hackett out of action for awhile, I'm sure they want a veteran guy to help them keep their position near the top of the Eastern Conferance standings.

I can't see trading in the conference will matter. Phoenix is not exactly competitive with Colorado.

I agree, I think Burke would be okay with being Esche's backup because they are good friends and he is his mentor. He would be playing with a good team, Clarke and everyone knows him since he already was a Flyer. I hope Therien gets sent to Phoenix in the deal, man he is becoming a big time defensive liability.

I'd take Burke on the Flyers for a conditional draft pick, thats it, not a damn thing more, they want more, they can keep him, my interest isn't THAT intense.

According to www.canoe.ca the Rangers are the #1 team in the running for Burke and they offered them Jamie Lundmark.

Clarke has already gone on record as saying that "Esche is his man" and with the play of Nittimakki and with Hackett in the fold as well I just don't see Burke landing in Philly.

Colorado would probably want a "cheaper" back-up rather than Burke...but you never know.

Don't forget that Burke could be receiving quite an endorsement from several players in Philly. Roenick, Amonte, Markov, Handzus, and Esche all played with him in Phoenix and probably back him.

And the insurance will most definately be used, Lalemon has lost it.

Question is would Prusek have to clear waivers to go down to Bingo? I sure hope not, cuz he would not clear.
