We can't expect any future success if the young core talent doesn't maximize their potential/asset value and Burmistrov is one of those key pieces.
Yes, Burmistrov is the very key to future success! Without him, Scheifele, Bogosian, Kane, Wheeler, and Trouba will surely fail!
It's great if he succeeds, but he's gonna succeed or fail with or without Wellwood.
You earn your place in the NHL, you don't get it handed to you on a silver platter. We're not gonna let Wellwood, who just had a career year, walk. It makes our team worse.
