I'm impartial. He certainly wasn't useless when he wasn't scoring. His physicality and his speed made him a great forechecker.
As much as I love Burns, I think the Sharks would have been better off not making this trade, but still trading Heatley for Havlat and re-signing Wellwood and White. The d-core wouldn't be amazing, but it'd be above average, while the Top-9 would be outstanding. This is assuming there wasn't anything going on behind the scenes where a Top-6 forward didn't want to play on the 3rd line.

Of course, even with all the trades, just re-signing Wellwood and not signing Handzus would have made the team a lot better.
