I'm not sold on Burmistrov ever being better than Fil, either. The guy has a long way to go before he's even close to the player he was drafted to be.
Filppula scored 70 points in 74 games at age 21. Burmistrov managed 11 points in 22 games at the same age. Filppula hasn't broken out, sure, but Burmistrov can't even score adequately at the AHL level.
