See I think this is where the difference of opinion is at.
I find Burmi already a decent third liner on most teams at young age of 21, so he has possibility of being a decent 2nd liner with possibility of being an elite 3rd liner. Somebody has to take the tough minutes and most teams give this to a third liner. Whether that's Sutter, Staal, Gausted, Helm, Stoll, Halpern, etc...
Some of those guys scored at lower rates than Burmistrov...
Didn't you do some analysis that showed that Burmistrov's numbers last year were pretty comparable to Couturier's?
And yet SC is one of HF's golden boys and a sure fire all-star, and some people here want to lament the play of Burmistrov?
Guarantee that if the Jets win a cup, the same constantly negative people on here will have problems with the way someone carried the cup around the ice.
