The reason Burns was chosen to stay with the big club is because the team feels he will not grow any in juniors, and unlike Wanvig and Wallin, the Wild are unable to assign him to the AHL. So its either Wanvig or Wallin playing 10-12 minutes up here, and Burns having an easy time in juniors, or letting Wanvig and Wallin get 17-19 min per game in Houston, gaining confidence while Burns is also able to be coached by Lemaire, learn how to prepare his body, and see probably 50-65% of the games. It all comes down to the fact that Burns is unable to play in the AHL.
