There's def some pulling, for sure. There's no doubt in my mind that Kane and Wheeler are stronger players than Burmistrov. I don't think there are any on this site that would disagree. It doesn't seem that much though, since Wheeler-Kane CF% < Kane without Wheeler and Wheeler-Kane CF% < Burmi-Kane...
But, I think the real positive to look here is that Burmistrov didn't pull them down a la Stuart pulling down Byfuglien and Bogosian.
Burmistrov isn't a top 6 guy, yet. But, looking at this at the age of 20... he was definitely a competent NHLer and that bodes well for being some top6 ceiling.
