You get one of the three players you mentioned and on top ofthat you get a pretty decent prospect.

Now this all depends on Timmins' evaluation. If believes the three players you mentioned have similar projections, I would do it. If he favors one of those players, then I would ask for more from Burke. His 5th, Gardiner and Schenn or Kadri.
Pretty much my reasoning as well, except there's no way you get their 5th, Schenn + Gardiner or Kadri. I doubt they'd even ship to 5th + Gardiner for the 3rd to begin with.

I personally don't want anything to do with Kadri. I don't feel like he's going to amount to much. Luke Schenn, I'd like. He should turn out into a solid stay-at-home defenseman, be it on the 2nd or 3rd pair. Then we wouldn't need to go out there looking for a FA to fill our needs on the back-end.
