One More Burmi Tid Bit:

Only 11 players from Burmi's 2010 draft class have played more than 10 NHL games.

1) Taylor Hall
2) Tyler Seguin
3) Erik Gudbranson
4) Ryan Johansen
5) Nino Niederreiter
6) Brett Connoly
7) Jeff Skinner
8) Alexander Burmistrov

12) Cam Fowler

37) Justin Faulk

42) Devante Smith-Pelly

Of that crop, I'd put Burmi's rate of development behind that of:

Hall, Seguin, Skinner, Fowler and Faulk.

Players without NHL experience:

He's probably a little behind Granlund (picked 10th), and maybe Tarasenko (16th) / Kuznetsov (26th)

That makes 8 players that have obviously out done Burmi and leaves 202 of 210 players drafted that year lagging behind. That seems about right for an 8th overall pick.

Who else from that draft class would you trade Burmi for? Without thinking too hard, the only other player I might consider is Niederreiter.
