I agree pretty much 100%.

Thing is with how Noel shelters the second line would it be better to have puck protection on the third shutdown line?

I think Wellwood is both stronger candidate (for the begining) and better fit since his line-mates will most likely be Joki and Kane (for the begining). I do however think Burmi will be a competent top6 player by the end of this coming season (whether that's through Jets or AHL/KHL via lockout)
