Just because he showed some loyalty in taking a good cap hit doesn't mean he doesn't get the boot if he sucks.
There's no way the Avs trade him away with such a good cap hit. Not only is it a good hit, but it will set the bar for other young players like ROR and eventually Barrie/Elliot.

Why don't the Canucks trade Burrows? Because he's on a great cap hit for what he brings, which is important when you want to contend.
