I think the Burns trade was made more for the future than now. DW knows he has to replace Boyle down the road, so he found the next best thing without giving up roster players and hurting the "now" chances (too badly).

I am still not sure about the Heatley trade but I'm not sure if it's because Heater was my homeboy or because Havlat is a soft contact-avoiding glass man that does not provide the offense that we need but rather more of Clowe/Jumbo style play... just faster... but much softer.
