Burkie had a genius for signing players like Jovo, Ohlund, et al. to longer term deals before their stock went through the roof (e.g., he particularly liked to negotiate with players who were on the injured list in order to get a discount).

Chouinard: 1.1 Million on the fourth-line.
Keslter: 1.9 Million on the third-line.
Linden: 600K when he should be retired and doing scouting or something for the Canucks.
Morrison: 3.2 Million when he's worth 2.5, tops.
Cooke: 1.5 Million for second/third line when he's worth 1 in the new NHL.
