The thing is, though. If you're going to blow things up and move a building block like Burns, why stop there?
I'd say move every other desirable piece and truly rebuild. They'd get a hell of a return on Koivu if they moved him. Not to mention that team would be down right awful and they'd get good draft picks as well.
I think Fletcher just needs to pick a direction and go with it. At present, I think the best option is to just stay the coarse. Play out the next year or two and move the movable pieces at the deadline. In that time period, they'll get out from under some of those strangling contracts. Once that happens, in theory the Wild should have some options to play around with and possibly be on the upswing. They just need to find a way to hold onto to their valuable assets, continue to mine the UDFA market, and hopefully things pan out.
