I think both of them really need full time duties in the NHL now. They've done very well in the AHL for a couple seasons now, and I feel its time for them to take the next step. They might struggle early on, but I think it will be better for their development.
I agree that would be a proper use of the talent. I'm not sure Burke is done with the bulking up though. Just adding JVR is not that much by itself nor would be adding a thug as the 12 or 13 forward. Also with the new 3rd line center being "offensively challenged" it will really put downforce on the wingers ability to put up points. I don't have a solution except they probably need to get the young guys playing somewhere and stick with them. If Kadri can actually be effective playing with a 10 goal center then that would be a real achievement.
