What type of center do call Jim Slater?

PS If some of you guys don't see a problem with an NHL regular (Burmi) not being able to score in the AHL I really don't know what to say.
Why do we have to view Burmistrov as NHL regular when we know he was put into the NHL before he was ready? IMO, he should instead be viewed as an elite prospect that we can't wait to bustout like a Gudbrandson, Johansen, Niederreiter, Connolly, Gandlund, Gormley, Schwartz, Tarasenko, etc.

Why is he viewed as a finished product, when most of the guys above are still viewed as elite prospects? Is Burmi being punished because former management made a bad decision to rush him to the NHL? Of the whole 2010 draft only Hall, Seguin, Skinner, and Fowler have made impacts. But because Burmistrov was rushed he's peaked, yet all the other teams are still high on their prospects? What's wrong with this picture?
