Its fair to suggest that the weak Winnipeg offense has held him back to some degree, but national team quality players stand out by their performance even on weak teams. Its one thing to have negligible goal production, but when you're not even generating assists, its a wonder that your name still circulates among those speculating on national team roster.
That's a very good point. That bottom line speaks for itself. No scouting in the world is going to allow him to become a productive player either.

Russian NT just can't be made up of below average NHL players. And you throw on the fact that Burmistrov is young?? I would rather premium KHL players who are leaders on their teams and are producing.
