I agree that his game has flaws, but I don't think they are insurmountable. Early reports out of St. John's stated that he was his hockey sense and passing were looking phenomenal. If I am right about the puck luck (and I think I am) then the numbers will come too.
Hope you're right.

Burmi seems to be a confident player, but if he's not producing points, you have to think his confidence is being affected. I think he feels he can be an offensive player, so perhaps if he can score a bit at the AHL level, he will gain the confidence needed to have offensive success at the NHL level.

He's still very young.
