This may come as a surprise to some, but i like Burmi. I like how he plays. I watched him a ton last year and I like his game. Especially his work on the pk. I want him to succeed, and thought his AHL stint would help kick-start his offensive game to be a valuable top 6 player for the Jets either later this year or next.
At some point, he'll have to produce
- at least more than he has to-date in the AHL - to play a top 6 role. I honestly don't think he'll be happy with a bottom 6 role - less icetime and fewer offensive zone opportunities or pp's, the whole 'respect' thing he had trouble with at the end of last year, etc - though that may be where he's best suited.
