I would want a little more back with Burns, like a conditional 1st or 2nd if I'm dealing Dubinsky simply because of the fact that Dubinsky while only being a year younger is restricted, as Burns is unrestricted, and is going to command more money as a UFA.
I mean there's still a little bit of an unknown element with him. Is this year his career year, and does he go back to being a 30 point defender? I don't think that's gonna happen, but part of his upcoming deal will be paid upon potential.
It's funny how blind you are right now. You're saying Burns+ is equal to Dubinsky (you're the only one on hfboards who thinks that).
But I'll tell you what. I'll keep Burns, get a late first round pick, and draft a Dubinsky. I'll have my 30-30-60 guy and an elite defender, you keep your 30-30-60 guy and... McIlrath...
You do know that Burns had a 40 point season even before his injury, right?
In conclusion, a Burns is a hell of a lot rarer than a Dubinsky.
