You also cannot assume that any of those guys will actually ever even see free-agency.

Even with the worst defender on your list there (Jbo) there is less than a slim chance you would be able to pull him in a trade without creating a hole on our roster. Especially with Calgary's unending dedication to being mediocre now.. lol

I honestly wouldn't want anything to do with Jbo either way.. Yuk

Burns was traded as part of a larger package if I am not mistaken and the over all return was nothing to sneeze at.
The trade was Burns + 2nd (37th in 2012) for Coyle + Seto + 1st (28th in 2011). Sharks didn't trade a single key piece from their roster. Setoguchi is a decent top 6 winger, Coyle is a potential top 6 forward with top line upside and it was a late 1st.
