Burke Placed on Waivers
The Tampa Bay Lightning have announced that G Sean Burke has been placed on waivers. Any team can claim him within 24 hours, and then he will be sent to the minors. The Lightning are set to go into the season with Marc Denis as the starter, who was acquired from Columbus for Fredrick Modin, and Joham Holmqvist. Burke could get interest from the Canucks, who still haven't found a backup for Roberto Luongo. The Bruins could possibly inquire, but his salary is a little steep, and with the lack of cap room they have it is unlikely. He could become a trading piece if he is not picked up on waivers for teams where the goalie situation doesn't work out.
