I think with Burmi's D skills he'd be quite a good third lime center this year, allowing sceifele to slot in as 2c with Little playing 2RW
I don't know if I would want to have Scheifele as the #2C right off the bat, seems like a lot to ask. I guess it comes down to how the #2 and #3 lines are used. If the #3 line is given more defensive zone starts and asked to line up against better lines then #2 I would think Scheifele would do better as the #2C. If the #2 line saw tougher competition, I would think Scheifele would be better served on the 3rd line.
But let's say that he is the #2C and Little is moved to the RW. How does the bottom 6 look?
Poni - Burmi - XX
YY - Slater - Thor
Wellwood, Antro, Mittens
Who is XX and who is YY? Wellwood and Antro could be XX, but does anyone want them in the role of YY? Mittens isn't ideal for either role, and more of a floater / injury replacement guy to me.
