I wouldnt mind a package deal for Burke which doesnt have to include a premier prospect. I have confidence in Draper's judgement to pick out unknown prospects (like JM Liles). I think a conditional pick is also only fair to both sides here - something like a 4th rising to a 2nd / 1st depending on playoff success (and please NOT on them resigning Burke like some recent deals (May / Teppo)).

If it doesnt work out with Burke the buyer only loses an unknown prospect and a 4th. They would likely let Burke walk and the Coyotes could resign him.

If it works out the buyer only gives up an unknown prospect and a very low 1st pick. If Burke won them the Cup that is a bargain, plus they would not be letting him walk.
