fantasy hockey - Burns

Is it time for fantasy GMs everywhere to cut this guy loose? I've always thought so highly of this guy, and expected him to break out again this season with new coaching in Minny. Should I stand pat, and wait for guys like Havlat and Sykora to get into the lineup, or should I cut him loose?

Guys like Aucoin, Robidas, Girardi, Grebeshkov, Demers, etc are all floating on the FA wire, and look awfully tempting.

Same with an extra forward, like Peverley.

I looked for a fantasy-related thread but couldn't see one. Sorry if this needs to be moved.

The Wild just need to score more goals.... when gaborik was healty in 07-08 he made 83 pts and burns had is break out campain...

last year burns and gaborik had injuries...

this year there not a lot of offense...when Eric belanger is your 1st scorer and marty Havlat have only 7 points in 12 games, there are a probleme...

I just watched 2 games this year, burns was a machine, great speed, mobility, offensive instinct but he made defensive errors...I just think that when the Wild offense will spark, burns will get a lot of points...45-55 pts campain...

I haven't started him since the first 3 games. However, he is the reason I am able to keep my Defense and Utilities down throughout the season. Until he gets his +/- back up to something respectable I won't start him.
