RWJC Posted July 10, 2022 Share Posted July 10, 2022 (edited) Per Peter Baugh Rumour/speculation is that Andre Burakovsky is a few rungs lower on GM Sakic’s priority list of FA’s to re-sign. Expectation is that Kadri will walk and Sakic will come back to Burakovsky once all other eligible COL FAs are inked. He’s 27 yrs old, a big body at 6’3 and 201 lbs, and a left shooting W (LW) where we already have surplus. His recent contract carried a cap hit of 4.9mill per and on market he could probably fetch 6mill + on term. its unlikely he does walk, imho, but if he does any thoughts on the Canucks potentially pursuing him, especially if we trade JTM on or before Wednesday? acquiring Burakovsky would render Pearson expendable and arguably create a better fit for the top 6 should Kuz (right shot LW) or others not work out. https://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=152839 Edited July 10, 2022 by RWJC 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
