They never even made an offer...

Burnett's agent, Darek Braunecker, delivered the news of his client's decision to Ricciardi at the general managers meetings in Dana Point, Calif. Somewhat surprising, Ricciardi said his club never tabled a formal offer to try to keep Burnett from opting out.

"At this point, there's really no need for us to make an offer," Ricciardi said. "The No. 1 thing for us is to make sure that he wanted to stay in Toronto."
