If these guys do reach their upside they are basically exactly what you want for a 1C and 2C, stylistically wise. Both are kind of 2way but basically you'd want to:
give Scheif's line (most likely with Kane and Wheeler) the Sedin treatment
give Burmi's line (most likely with Little and Ladd) the Kesler/Bergeron treatment
And THAT'S the key here. Scheif is good enough defensively for a potential 1st liner and Burmi is already past where one would expect him to be defensively and he's obviously too skilled NOT to be at least a 50 point player, and that's the down-side. The production offensively will never be a problem with Kane and Scheif on one line and Burmi and Little on another.

On a side note.... God I love the fact that for once management has DIRECTION. Something Waddell never seemed to figure out.
