Interesting side note: of the 22 players drafted after Burmi in the first round in 2010 only 1 of them has played more than 10 games in the NHL to date. I would like for Alex to have gotten off to a more productive start this season points wise as well but I think it's way too early in his career to know how good he will be yet.
I agree, and have tried to make that point as well.
Doesn't seem to matter to some though.
