Burns is not worth the $5.8MM he was paid by SJS. That alone was worth a win by Fletch. Think about it on another level. Their long-term replacement for Boyle, Burns, is now playing forward. Perhaps SJS has figured out he is only good on offense.

From my perspective, the Wild have won on every deal with SJS.
