With rumours of Alex Burmistrov returning to the 'Peg and that Mikhail Grabovski & Nikolai Kulemin wanting to play together, a perfect storm is brewing. Could Winnipeg revert back to its Euro-heavy Jets 1.0 roots with Maurice in charge?
After two seasons of being misused by coach Claude Noel, restricted free agent Alex Burmistrov is heading to Ak Bars of the KHL after signing a two-year deal today. This is not good news for the local ice hockey franchise.
Alexander Burmistrov wants out! At least, that is the word on the street, but where did this word come from and does it mean anything? Haven't we heard this song and dance before? Is this par for the course in Winnipeg?
