Off topic, but honestly, in hindsight, as much as I love Burns, I probably wouldn't do that trade again. Re-sign Ian White and Wellwood, keep Setoguchi, and trade Heatley for Havlat. I think the Sharks would have done a lot better with that roster than the one they iced.
Then again, Burns probably would have been traded to Detroit which would have sucked.
