If Burmistrov wasn't drafted in the top 10 his value would be almost nothing. He has played near 200 games at a .30 points pace. He only scored at a .50 pace in the AHL during the lockout.

This puts his offense at the level of Darren Helm... Sure he has tools and you hope Datsyuk could really be a big influence, but you pay for the way he currently plays and add a little for the future maybe. There is no reason to offer a first or anything of big value, simply put Burmistrov hasn't earned it and his value is at an all-time low.

I understand Winnipeg still wanting a decent return, but he isn't going to net a huge return. While young he now has established question marks and is a reclamation project, you don't pay steep for that at least if your management is smart they don't. Wings fans can hate on Holland but he isn't a dumb guy and he is overly cautious. Overpaying for a reclamation project isn't really his MO.
