Time for the Jets to bring destruction upon the Canadian capital. In all seriousness, we should be able to grab this one, and I'm excited for the possibility of seeing Alexander Burmistrov in action again. As Mark Scheifele's games before he's OHL-bound wind down, we can see he should simply not be spending an entire season up with this team (despite the goal). We want him coming back to us a better skater and faceoff man, and tossing him into the fire this early (and giving him marginal minutes) is doing him no favours.
Of course, I could be wrong and Claude Noel, Kevin Cheveldayoff, and Co. are crazy enough to continue this charade...
