Though I'M not the Wild GM so they can do whatever they can.....
I think that all those d-men that we have in the system, if they all developed according to plan, are serving 2 purposes. Keeping the best amongst them for ourselves, getting "rid" of the others to fill the blanks. I would be really surprised to see all the potential top-3 guys leaving so we'd be stick with all the #4-#6 potential d-men....
For Burns I'd do it.... Burns is what you hope McDonagh develops into.... he may/may not. Burns is a stud.
