Could Alex Burmistrov find his way back to the NHL? According to Slava Malamud, foreign correspondent for Sport-Express.ru, the former Jet may be looking to do just that as long as its not in Winnipeg. “He said that he knows that the Jets were looking to trade him, and if thats the case then he wouldnt mind it as long as he comes back to the NHL,” Malamud said while on TSN 1290s Rona Roundtable with Rick Ralph in reference to comments made to a Russian publication about Burmistrovs intentions of possibly coming back to the NHL. “Hes being kind of diplomatic there, but the vibe I caught from that exchange when I read it in the original Russian was that hes not too hot on the idea of coming back to Winnipeg, and he might want to try his luck somewhere else,” Malamud said. Burmistrov failed to live up to his billing as a top-10 NHL pick while in Winnipeg, with reports surfacing that he failed to see eye-to-eye with the teams coaching staff. “The vibe I got from him was that he didnt really like it anymore in Winnipeg,” Malamud said following Burmistrovs departure. “Not necessarily the city, but he didnt like the way he was being used. One of the phrases he said was, ‘Im willing to go to any club thats willing to let me play. That sort of implies that the Jets didnt let him play, or didnt let him play the way he wanted to play.” The Jets and Burmistrov parted ways following the 2012-13 season as the now 22-year-old returned to his hometown club Kazan Ak-Bars, where he posted a team-leading 10 goals and 37 points in 54 games. “I think that right now hes ready to come back because hes one of those Russian kids who grew up in the late 90s, and for them the NHL was their ultimate dream. I dont think hes willing to give up on that yet." Should he return to the NHL, the Jets hold his rights and would have to deal Burmistrov to another club for him to be eligible to play. “I think Burmistrov still thinks he can be a top six guy in the National Hockey League, whether there are NHL clubs who think the same, thats the question. I dont think hes going to make it as a grinder.” The Rona Roundtable with Rick Ralph airs weekdays from 11am-1pm CT on TSN 1290 Winnipeg. To listen to the rest of the interview download the podcast.

With that said, you cant always make it fit exactly perfect for every single guy youve got on the team. Butt for the guys that are touching the ball a lot, you need to play to their strengths.dddddddddddd.Despite ranking near the bottom of the league statistically, the Bucs are not devoid of talent on offence.Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson became the first tandem of Bucs with 1,000 yards receiving in the same season in 2014; running back Doug Martin is two seasons removed for rushing for 1,454 yards and 11 touchdowns, and last years second-round draft choice Austin Seferian-Jenkins showed flashes of being an impact tight end during an injury-shortened rookie season.Koetter helped the Falcons reach the NFC championship game in 2012, his first season in Atlanta. He replaces Jeff Tedford in Tampa Bay, giving the Bucs the experienced play-caller they lacked after former quarterbacks coach Marcus Arroyo assumed those duties while Tedford sat out the entire regular season after undergoing a heart procedure.The Bucs pursued Koetter after the Falcons fired former coach Mike Smith last month.The new offensive co-ordinator said there were a number of factors that made the position attractive.It starts with Lovie Smith and his reputation as a leader and a head football coach in the NFL. And then, secondly, just the talent they have on offence, Koetter said.Every team in the NFL has some areas theyd like to improve, and nobody has 11 starters that theyre in love with from the very first day, so its a work in progress, he added. But, trust me, Tampa Bay, personnel-wise, is in better shape than one on the outside might think.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '
