Wild trade Brent Burns to San Jose

The Minnesota Wild have traded Brent Burns and the 2012 second round draft choice to the San Jose Sharks for Devin Setoguchi, Charlie Coyle and the 28th pick in the first round in the 2011 draft.

More to come later, but I'm a fan of this move. What say you?

Setoguchi's contract is nice ($9M over three years), but Charlie Coyle's the key for me:

NHL Central Scouting's Gary Eggleston
"Charlie is a skilled forward, who can play a power game as well as a finesse game. He has very good size and athleticism. He has very soft hands and is a confident puck handler. His passes are accurate and proper for the situation. He has a long and strong stride and beats defenders with his acceleration and puck skills. He has a very good wrist shot to support his passing skills in his role as a major contributor to his team's offense. He should, however, shoot the puck more than he does to take advantage of his excellent shot."
