Gaborik is better than Burns though, I'm not saying he has more value, but that's a comparable asking price. Both had 1 yr left in contract as well.

And eh, Burns is pretty prone to injury himself.
Burns was also overpayment, imo. If the Rangers are looking to pre-empt cap difficulties, teams might take advantage of that in negotiating.

I'm offering a 1st either our best C/D prospect, and a decent 2/3 line player. It's not the moon, but I don't think Gaborik merits that much more at this point in time.
