Not keeping Brent Burns was one of Fletch's best moves. Horrible on the back-end, good on PP/offensively. And like Cullen and Clutterbuck, disappears during the second half of the season. At $3-$4MM, he would have been okay to re-up. Not with what he got.

BTW, with his close to $6MM paycheck, I am sure the SJS are not really thrilled behind the scenes, with what they paid him. I don't believe he has played a game this year. If he has, it was just in the past week or so. Perhaps him being out of the line-up was among the reasons the SJS had such a strong start.
