Now 3 months into his AHL tenue, i'm sure there are no "trade Burmi" chants going on with Jets management, but they will want to produce some points soon. To say otherwise is crazy. Maybe he needs another year in the AHL, that's fine, but if Burmi is a 10 g scorer in the AHL or NHL, he'll be replaced. Fact of life.
If he's not producing points, fine use that argument. But by and large center's don't tend to score many goals. Other than his Hart year Henrik Sedin has never had more than 22 goals in a season. Better trade him!

In the last two seasons Thornton has 39 goals and 147 points.

Seriously one of the first things they teach you playing hockey is assists are just as good as goals. If he's not producing points, fine use that as an argument. Bashing a center for a lack of goal scoring is simply ignorance of the way hockey is played
