Biggest difference is that Burns played forward his entire life and was moved to D when he was drafted by the Wild. Same thing with Gilroy, who was a winger during a lot of his early playing but converted to D when he got to college (pretty sure, might have been while he was at Apple Core...) Del Zotto always played D, and while he always put up pretty wild numbers in juniors he was also helped by playing with guys like Tavares, Stamkos, Hodgson, etc. while he was young. Sure as a top-line defenseman playing with those forwards your numbers can get inflated a bit.
