SJHN Daily: Burns Was Hoping To Be Reunited With Pavelski

On 32 Thoughts: The Podcast, Elliotte Friedman noted that in the trade that sent long-time San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns to the Carolina Hurricanes, Burns had to approve the move.

It seems Burns was hoping for a trade to Dallas, but whatever happened, he seems to have been convinced that Carolina is a good fit with a chance to go on a Cup run. On the podcast, Friedman mentioned he believes the three teams on Burns’s trade list were the Dallas Stars, Nashville Predators, and Florida Panthers.

Darren Dreger said San Jose and Dallas never got close, despite Burns’s wishes:

That’s a shame! It would’ve been fun to see Burns reunited with Joe Pavelski! Burns also has a ranch in Texas and would’ve had a familiar face in Peter DeBoer behind the bench.

The San Jose Sharks ended up sending Burns to Carolina for Steven Lorentz, Eetu Makiniemi, and a 2023 third-round pick. San Jose will also retain 34 percent of the remaining three years of Burns’s contract ($8 million AAV).

It also appears Burns will have a number change in Raleigh — he couldn’t do that in the Big D, Bill Goldsworthy’s No. 8 is retired there.
