Forward Alex Burmistrov may have played his last game for the Winnipeg Jets. As discussed by the Winnipeg Free Press, the soon-to-be restricted free agent wants to move on and compete for another organization. Two league sources have reportedly told the Free Press as much. If so -- and Burmistrov's ongoing discontent with playing for head coach Claude Noel has been widely acknowledged -- a trade would obviously be in everyone's best interest. But easier said than done. Especially, as noted by Ed Tait, when the entire NHL knows the RFA wants out.
