Brent Burns To The Leafs?

There's no doubt about it, more changes are coming to the Toronto Maple Leafs' roster during the offseason. We've already seen general manager Kyle Dubas send Kasperi Kapanen to Pittsburgh, now we wait as he lines up his next big move. Chatter still surrounds Frederik Andersen, Alexander Kerfoot, Andreas Johnsson and William Nylander and one of them could be headed to the San Jose Sharks. Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports that the Sharks are looking to make some serious changes and that they could likely target Nylander. Kurz adds that the Sharks spoke to the Leafs about Kapanen before he was traded to the Penguins and adds that the Sharks would be well aware the Leafs would need a top 4 defenseman to move Nylander. That top four defenseman?According to Kurz the Sharks would be willing to move Brent Burns to try and get a deal done. This would require some other pieces to equal out the salaries and would require Burns to accept the trade because of his modified no trade clause. Would you give up Nylander if it meant landing Burns?
