Alex Burmistrov Retires from NHL


Recommended Posts

I really thought he had a chance to become a useful player.


There is still a bias amongst coaches to give plenty of rope to gritty bottom end players, but not to skill guys.


There were plenty of guys who had terrible stretches but kept in the lineup.  Dowd was downright terrible.


Burnistrov didn’t get that benefit of the doubt and was all over the lineup and sitting for long stretches.  He wasn’t able to take advantage of those chances.

Interesting. just couldn't seem to carve out his notch on the team. Nothing to be ashamed of. Toughest league in the world. He can go back home and probably make more while playing easier hockey. Cant blame him. Good luck Burm and I hope you get a shot at the Olympics.
