Ayyy that's my dude! A major late bloomer, but I feel like he's finally coming into his own. He will be a solid bottom six option for us this season, I guarantee it.

Should I quote you?

Sure, I don't mind eating crow if he's a bust. Low risk signing anyway, but I do believe he'll be useful.

Not arguing either way, you just said: "I guarantee it". Thought maybe you wanted to have that proof for down the road :P

I had him as a second piece with Evander Kane in a Kesler trade back in the day, and I think he can still be pretty effective. Look forward to what he can do this year.

Looking forward to seeing more of Burmistrov, he's tenacious and seems versatile. Giddy-up.

Wouldn't mind experimenting with him on the Sedin's wing at some point this year actually.

Burmistrov finally has a player page with about 10 posts after signing more two months back.

Here's to him popping two goals on opening night and seeing this page balloon to 40 pages overnight.

Good luck Burmy!

I do consider Burmistrov a bubble player who has to show some offensive upside. While I can say I have not seen enough from him his package is enticing. Obviously coaching sees enough in his play to keep him and they do give him some ozone opportunity.

What to say, Benning did some homework. Not too much to complain about Burmy. Solid in all 3 zones now he's warmed up after a few games. Great instincts, smart plays. And now on the line with Baer and Boeser, amazing chemistry. Looked like a #1 line last night. If TG keeps them together, which he better, they might be our highest scoring line...we all know how much secondary scoring we've always needed, here we have it.

Unless they provide primary scoring.. in which case we would still need secondary scoring :P

Benning is turning the Canucks into a restoration garage with all of these players that are getting second chances and providing.

Granlund won't do much with the twins IMO, Horvat I think is playing injured so if Vanek still is angry, might get him going as best he can and Virt, that's up to him. He seems to be losing confidence that he showed in the preseason and Green is seeing that. If Virt can find his edge he had, then yes, he'll pot a few.

He has been solid so far.  With the exception of Gagner, all of Benning's reclamation projects have done as well, or better than expected.  Once we are out of the race at the deadline, he should be able to flip a few of these guys for a few more 2nd-4th round picks.
