On this team. I don't think on a team stacked like Boston he would be.

We really don't have a number 1 defenseman on this team; Zidlicky, Zanon and Schultz aren't number 1 defensemen. Neither is Stoner, Spurgy, or Scandella.

Simply saying it is by necessity and not by choice Burns is our top defenseman.

Do I think he could be? If he gets the right coach and continues to progress, I think he'll be a top defenseman. Kind of like Marc Staal.
