Which frankly isn't unreasonable. Paajarvi and Burmistrov are both players IIRC the same age and seasons played, both with similarly underwhelming ice time earned and production. Both were similar picks in neighboring drafts. At least a 3rd coming back with either is fair value imo. Whether the other team is willing to trade an inconsistent, high-drafted young player for an inconsistent but proven, high-salaried player is another question. We know that the answer is yes in Winnipeg's case, but I guess not emphatically enough so.

I noticed Burmi is going to be an RFA coming off his ELC. It'll be interesting to see how those negotiations go as Burmi very much seems to want a fresh start and the organization doesn't seem to believe in him much. You've got to believe he's still on the market.
