Burn Stream Slope causing entire DEM to change elevation???

I used the "Burn Stream Slope" function in ArcHydro and the results are.. strange. When I use the identify on the previous DEM and the resulting DEM at the top of a hill (not at a stream) the entire DEM has shifted elevation by over 44 feet! Is this normal, or did something go very wrong?



Note: I used the default values for Assign Stream Slopes (High number for starting elevation = 1000 and Elevation drop value = 10) as I would get error messages for out of range values if I changed these.





Thank you for your help clarifying this!
