02:24 PM ET 05.22 | Winnipeg Jets forward Alexander Burmistrov will not re-sing with the team, according to a report by Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press. Lawless cites two sources who say Burmistrov is looking to be traded. It is believed that he has had a contentious relationship with head coach Claude Noel, which culminated in a four-game span in March when Burmistrov was a healthy scratch. Lawless previously reported that Winnipeg attempted to trade Burmistrov at the trade deadline. The club engaged in talks with the Buffalo Sabres, New York Islanders and Ottawa Senators. Burmistrov will become a restricted free agent this July. His agent only commented that he is not looking to play in the KHL.

You have a tough time spelling 'their' don't you? But, one out of the first three ain't bad.

.333 will get you in the starting lineup for the Jays.

333 ???? Are you kidding ? The Jays have a slew of past 300 hitters posting averages under 275. 333 would get em keys to the City ;-)

"A Highway Runs Though It." The Trans-Canada. Or ... he can float his way out on the Red River.

You got it ! Some non so subtle Agent speak..

Yeh I like listening to Noel too, but I've been wondering since about midseason last year whether or not the players do. Burmistrov basically needs to know wot position he's playing, with whom - preferably bigger, and faster skating types - he'd look like a multi-million bucks with Alex, or on a line with guys like Iginla or Lucic, or Byfuglien, but there-in lies Noel's problem - he lacks tough up front, and, what he has on defence has some different ideas.

Well since he will not re-sing with the team they should woo him with a new organist.
