Dreger: Burke Contacts Snow Regarding #1 Pick.
Brian Burke has wasted no time in staying true to his word on pursuing the #1 overall pick in the draft, Darren Dreger reports.

As predicted, Luke Schenn, will almost have to be included in the deal. As pointed out earlier by NickD in the comments, Garth Snow passed up on Schenn in last year’s draft. However, because Schenn had such a successful rookie season, his stock has high and Snow could use Schenn as potential trade bait in another deal that would give him a good young forward, as their defense is already pretty deep.
Garth, please keep the pick.
