Look at what San Jose gave up to get Burns in the first place.

There's zero chance the Oilers would match an offer like that (or even have the assets to do so if you take out the big 5)

It's hard to convince Oilers fans that after what Kevin Lowe pulled off bringing Pronger to town.

I agree with you though. It's gonna have to be a UFA because EDM is not trading Eberle Hall RNH or Yakupov. No chance in hell.
