You realize that's still 3 first round assets right? The point is, Burns is a young, huge, mobile #1 d-man on a long contract- that type of player is worth a premium to NHL teams.

You might think you can throw together a mish mash of picks and lesser prospects like that Habs fan just did, but the Sharks have ZERO reason to move him- and won't.
