Not just going forward Gump, more so in terms of today, now, this summer. If we signed Zajac as a UFA this summer, I'd certainly look at moving Burmistrov for a top 4 defenceman.

Burmistrov is an 8th overall pick 3 summers ago this June who made the jump to the NHL right away (albeit too early; rushed) and he scored nearly 15 goals last year, has the tools and smarts of a smart defensive forward, very good speed, etc.

I think his value now or this summer alone is enough to net us a top 4 defenceman, and i'd really rather value my assets more than you're doing by going after a free Zajac and using Burmistrov-asset to better the team elsewhere.

Like I said, we won't agree here.
