Burmi would be a great 3rd line center for us, and could potentially form a great partnership with Tarasenko. We pretty much roll 3 2nd lines with the Backes line getting the most playing time, so Burmi would still get plenty of opportunities.
A playoff team shouldn't count on Burmistrov as a center right now IMO. He'll be a heck of a player one day but he's still figuring out how to make the most of his skill.

A team with aspirations of going deep in the playoffs could get a player that is much more effective right now for much less than he'd cost.
