Agreed... but, Burke might not have the choice. This year's 1st round picks are seemingly over-valued (at least on these boards), so he might not get a good package.

His choice might be Kaberle for 2009 1st round pick (15-20 overall)
Kaberle for 2010 1st round pick (? overall) + good prospect

Unless Burke has his eye on someone specific in this year's draft, he might be willing to take the latter...

However, having said that, Burke will value 2009 picks > 2010 picks, not just because this year is supposed to be deeper, but because a 2009 pick will most likely play in the NHL earlier than a 2010 pick. This seems to be something Burke does value...
