    Burke’s taking the necessary precautions with his two likeliest trade candidates.

    Update – Here’s the latest on Moore’s contract situation as per TSN:

    “Moore, believed to be originally seeking a deal averaging $2.75 per season, softened his demand after the Maple Leafs table a counter offer at less than $2 million on Monday evening. The two sides continued to negotiate on Tuesday and sources say Moore once again softened in hopes of closing the gap to encourage a deal to keep him in his home town. While the negotiation appears stalled at the moment, the door hasn’t been officially closed.”
