07:15 AM ET 05.23 | Alex Burmistrov may have played his final game with the Winnipeg Jets. Two league sources have told the Free Press Burmistrov, due to become a restricted free agent on July 5, has no intention of re-signing with the Jets. Burmistrov wished to be dealt at the trade deadline and the Jets worked in vain to move him. It appears a trade is still the preferred course of action. Burmistrov and head coach Claude Noel beefed on and off over the past two seasons and the relationship hit an all-time low when the player was a healthy scratch four straight games in March. The Jets attempted to trade Burmistrov and reportedly had discussions with the Ottawa Senators, Buffalo Sabres and New York Islanders at the deadline.

Possible mini-contest of the day?

If you were a talking head (case) what would be your catch phrase like PMs "Monster".

I think after every good play I'd say, "Well he's certainly not from To***to"!

He's not worried about the winter. He can handle that. It's the mosquito season that has him worried.
