DZ and Grachev have HUGE potential but have their values at their lowest.
Werek has the potential to be a solid #3 or a good #2, he's progressing nicely.
Thomas as the 4th is a huge risk/reward case. He's been tearing it up and his shooting/shot placement is amazing. His size is an issue but he has a great wrist shot. He's also built like a tank so he won't get knocked off the puck easily.
Burns is an awesome player but I follow the Rangers prospects a lot. To do that 4 for 1 that I listed above would have me super excited.
Remember, DZ is only 20 so he has 5 more years before he's Burns age and I think by then, he will be putting up his kind of #'s. Which is 15 goals 30-40 assists.
Is Burns a lock for the Norris this year? Big over payment. You empty the cupboard for a player that just as easily could do a Del Zotto? I like Burns, but makes no sense in terms of azquiring yet another right handed Dman. Sub Girardi, a prospect and a pick and maybe. Second why would Minny trade him? Makes zero sense from their side.
