If Burns were on D, I'd have Vlasic as the #3 guy. That said, how many team's can match him as a #3? Hard to say that a guy is a #3, when only 4-5 teams have an equivalent #3. I would concede that he is ideally a #3, but with 30 teams, he is a mid/lower-level #2.
Closest would be:
Edler/Hambuis/Bieska (push- depends on style preference)
Johnson/Tyutin/Wisniewski (push- depends on style preference)
Carlson/Green/Azlner (currently no)
I'll say this though, the team is going to need either a tweener first liner, or tweener top pairing in addition to Boyle, Marleau, and Thornton after this year.
I'd look to acquire a top 6 forward at the deadline is cost controlled through next year, and try to grab another next year in free agency. If you can get a 2/3 d-man even better (I believe Burns is the perfect winger for Joe), but I don't think that's realistic.
