Why Burke May Pass On Penner

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun,

Of all the GMs in the league the one Lowe is probably closest to is Burke. They talk almost daily.
I find it difficult to believe that there wouldn’t be conversation, lots of conversation, before this happened.
As interesting as this may be from an Oilers perspective with Lowe having been unable to spend anywhere near his $45-million US budget, particularly to get a forward and specifically a left winger, its far more interesting from a Ducks perspective. Burke was on the record prior to the July 1 free agent frenzy saying if anybody went after Penner, he’d match.
Would he be first in NHL history not to match?
There’s a reason for him to take a pass.
