If you look at advanced stats, nearly every single player on the jets has better performance when on the ice with Burmi vs. without.
And he can't be overrated defensively, and have no offensive skill, AND play with scrubs (which he generally does) AND have the second best +/- on the team. These cannot all add up. His offensive production is not there, but his defensive play most certainly is.
I'd say three players. Fowler, Faulk and Tarasenko.
