How about:
Gags+Gilbert+Oilers 1st in 2012? The logic behind this of course is that the Oilers won't be a lottery team next year and the pick likely (hopefully) 8-14 range.
Just checked the standings, didn't realize the Oilers were so close to the absolute bottom. I was assuming they'd have a 3-5 range pick. Gilbert isn't anything special as far as I'm concerned. IMO, Gagner & a top-5ish pick is about right for Burns. Still not sure if the Wild would actually do it. Burns is arguably the main piece of their core.

Thats ok I want to keep Gagner and our 2nd and you keep Burns I would gladly take Clutterbuck off your hands as he will eventually hurt someone in one of your practices

As long as it isn't Koivu, Havlat, Latendresse, Cullen, Bouchard, Burns, Zidlicky, Schultz or Backstrom, I'm cool with it.

What do you Minny fans feel the Oilers would need to add to net a guy like Burns?
Would a package surrounding Penner+Cogs+Gilbert+2nd in 2011 work for Burns+Brodziak+3rd?
This is hilarious!

There's nothing beyond Gilbert's hometown that's attractive to Minny. He hasn't been playing well, and that contract isn't easy to move. He has little to no value.

Burns and Brodziak for Gagner and a 2nd isn't even close.

Just awful from a Minny PoV.
Pretty much. I hope Gilbert can turn things around for Edmonton but Minnesota already have defensemen which do his job.

I wouldn't talk unless there's a 1st and/or a young gun on the table. In the case of trading Burns, quality is better than quantity. And since Edmonton has no reason to do that, let's just cut our losses.

People need to watch Burns and what he does, he is a beast he just plain toys with some players given how strong he is, and given his size his skating is freaking amazing, oh and he scores a ton of goals 14 so far, 2nd time in his career he's over 10 and this is on a crappy offensive team.

If EDM wants Burns you better be prepared to part with a 1st and a top prospect to start the conversation.

There's a little bit of difference between the 1st overall pick and a +20th overall pick.

No thanks. As much I'm completely unimpressed with Barker, at least he's only got one year (after this year) left on his bloated contract. That can't be said for Gilbert...

Again i'm not saying EDM would give up top pick but a 1st is what would be required unless you pay in prospects and/or roster players, just don't see why people keep mentioning burns.
