Sounds like Matt Gilroy is going to sign elsewhere. Word I am hearing is that Burke wouldn’t give Gilroy a 1 way deal and that other teams, including the Canucks where willing to give him a one way deal. Not over yet, but the fat lady is warming up.
Similarly, sounds like Burke is in the lead for signing the Monster. Nothing is imminent, but I was told that things would really have to come off the rails for him not to sign in Toronto.
Darren Dreger is reporting on his blog that Burke has already called the GM’s of the Tampa Lightning and NY Islanders. Dreger suggests that Luke Schenn would almost certainly be a part of the ask from either team in exchange for either of the top two picks. Addition by subtraction???? Stay tuned.
