On a related note I think Burmi is quickly becoming the most physical player on the team.
He's finishing checks all over the ice, including against much larger players like Chara.
Watching the Bruins game you could tell the two teams had different intensity levels since the Bruins all finished their checks every time while most Jets would turn away once the puck is gone.
He was doing that all of last year, which is why I didn't understand the "he needs to bulk up" critiques. If no one looked up his weight stats no one would say anything.
He's had a lot of jump these last few games, always seems to do everything with enthusiasm.
