Why wouldn't he? He fits the Burke mold. North American(you can't really even tell he's Russian; he plays a very North American style and is incredibly fluent in English. No accent to speak of), big-bodied, tough, and talented. He'd get his chance with the Leafs, and he'd get a good shot in their top-6 with talented players, unlike with the Rangers, where he's a victim of depth.
I have only seen him play a mere few times (3 or 4) but i have liked what i've seen very much. A combination of size and skill would make one think he is a guy Burke would be quite interested in. There is a top 6 spot available on Kessel's line (though Wilson has just recently changed all of them) and he could definitely have every chance to succeed here.
