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.
I agree with most of the posts that Stuart is best utilized in the #5-6 role. Bogosians return is going to be great.

Burmi on the PK is very fun to watch. I just wish there was a little more finish on it. He will make these great moves and then fan on a shot or slip. I think with time that will come. I love that he can tie up 1-3 opposing players in the boards.
