Dion, Rielly, Finn, and Percy could be one of the better top 4 combos in the near future.

Dion has not had much support here during his time, and he really has not played badly. Playing run and scramble with Komi, Lebda, Schenn, Kaberle, Liles for support couldn't have been easy. He could be a monster again with one of Percy, Finn, or Reilly. Having a vet is invaluable.
I am not suggesting that we should get rid of Dion, I'm saying he may want to ditch us if things don't go well in the next two seasons. Like you said he gets no respect here,I see him exploring free agency which would likely force Burke's hand, same for Kessel. This is prolly why I thought Burke would draft Dumba, he could replace some what Dion brings to the table, if he ever left.
