Yes, we need this. Burmi is coasting all over the place. We have guys on our roster who simply don't play or practice at 100%. That will change. I anticipate Noel is ticked off with a lack of intensity and this will begin to push players. Don't be surprised to see Burmi, Schiefele, Maceneur and maybe Thornburn removed from the Jets roster the second that Miettenen is back.
Watched the Jets camp on Wednesday at the IcePlex and was a bit surprised by Burmistrov's lack of intensity, maybe lack of urgency is a better term. The Jets have said they want to get bigger and especially down the middle and given that they've both Scheifele and Wright in the pipeline now, I wonder if a trade is pending.

My wild guess; Burmistrov to be traded in exchange for a capable stop-gap D, given that Bogo is out?
