This. I think Burmistrov is a very special player. Huge skill level, great speed, very creative, great attitude and, most importantly, exceptional hockey sense. He's got great defensive awareness & PK ability, so he's not hurting the team even if he's not scoring.


Considering his upside, and the dearth of high-end centremen in the NHL right now, I think his trade value is very, very high. I wouldn't trade him if I were Winnipeg, but in terms of value, I think it's high enough to be the centrepiece for a guy like Weber, Yandle, or Bobby Ryan in a trade.
