Rental Rates Go Up

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,

“I talked to (Flyers GM Paul) Holmgren (Wednesday) night,” said Ducks GM Brian Burke before the game. “We were in there right to the end. We could have Forsberg on the ice right now, but there were certain things I wouldn’t do.”
Burke is now expected to immediately turn his attention to St. Louis and forward Keith Tkachuk, who can play either centre or wing and, like Doan before he signed and Forsberg, is headed for unrestricted free agency this summer.
“But you can’t change your price tag just because another team made a deal,” said Burke, “and the price of rental players is going up.”
