I think we all know it fairly obvious we need scoring help in the worst way. But at the same time you may be gaining production on the front end, it stands to reason you're losing a good bit of it on the back end.
There isn't a defenseman in the organization that can effect a game like Burns does. Zidlicky is what he is. Relying on Barker is going to be hit or miss. Outside of that, they're working with a solid but unspectacular core. It's hard to envision players outside of Zidlicky and Barker contributing much to the offense. And for me, that's where I start to worry about moving Burns.
I just don't see the need or point of making a splash this offseason. I think you've just got to play this season on it's own merits and see where you stand next season. Making moves in an attempt to create an excitement for the fan base isn't what I want to see. I want to see a long term direction more than anything. If that means having a boring offseason and season, so be it.
