Burke: "Everyone's being unreasonable."
The Schenn's together?

Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke said he has offers out across the NHL map to swap draft picks, but hasn't received any bites yet.

"Everyone's being entirely unreasonable," he said as he left Wednesday's board of governors meeting.

He's hoping he gets a bite, though, because he made it clear he had already decided on the player he'd like with his No. 7 pick, and said he would "try to move down one or two spots" to get him.

The player he's thought to be after is Brandon Wheat Kings centre Brayden Schenn, brother of defenceman Luke, who was selected by the Leafs last year. Brayden is said to be a better player than Luke, a defenceman.

Burke is worried, because the Los Angeles Kings, who pick fifth, have Brayden high on their list. They've already interviewed him several times and general manager Dean Lombardi is sold on him. However, there is said to be some dissent in the ranks with his scouts.
That's what happens when you run your mouth all the damn time.
