Well Burns still had one full season left. At this point, you are not getting a full season of Edler.

Both players have had injury woes: Burns with his concussion and Edler with his back. Edler has, however, just been cleared to play yesterday:

Burns played an 80 game season and proved that he was healthy before being traded. Edler does not have that opportunity and this is not his first back issue, so there will be some speculation his injuries may be more chronic.

It was:

Burns and a high 2nd; for
Setoguchi, Coyle, and a late 1st.

Setoguchi after a brilliant 2008/2009 season struggled through 2009/2010 and 2010/2011. Coyle had a good but not great year in the NCAA before being traded, but he's a big centre.

Edler as a rental, has less value than the short it's worth it for the Canucks to hang onto him and try to re-sign him.
