  1. I can see Nicklas Jensen getting 9 games with the team this year before being sent back to junior, but I don't see him sticking with the team for the entire season.
  2. It might be a prep school thing. All I know is that every article I've read says he was a junior last year.
  3. Except he's going into Grade 12. Kind of an issue.
  4. Man, I go from completely disagreeing with you in the "Trade Mason Raymond" thread to completely agreeing with you in the "Kyle Wellwood" thread. Your opinions should be the same as mine, dammit! Conform!

  5. There's a reason Burrows is playing in the NHL and Krog has yet to play a full season in the NHL. Figure it out. And he gets paid far too much for it. I would rather have the cap space this season to give us a legitimate opportunity of picking up a top-six forward, either Sundin through free agency or through a trade.
  6. Of course he'll want a raise. It'll be damn well-deserved as well. I'm just saying it would be very foolish to trade him right now when he's such a bargain. As long as Gillis makes his raise reasonable (ie. not the kind of raise Cooke got, which was ridiculous, I agree), he'll be a quality player on the Canucks for years to come.
  7. A. You're not going to get a player better than Burrows by trading him away. That's not how trades work. B. Burrows is not dead weight. If you're saying trade Burrows for a pick or a prospect, who will you replace him with? Pettinger? Burrows is better than Pettinger (with, perhaps, slightly less offensive upside) and gets paid half what Pettinger makes. Give your head a shake.
  8. Congratulations. You read five words of my post. You apparently missed the last half: He led the Canucks in PIM, short-handed goals, and plus/minus. He also scored 3 gamewinners, tied for second on the Canucks last season in that category and was second on the team in hits. All that for league minimum, in the salary cap era, makes him a very difficult player to replace.
  9. Burrows is the best bargain in the NHL. 31 points for the league minimum is a steal of a deal right there. Then you factor in the fact that he's one of the best agitators in the league, a great penalty killer, and a solid character guy and you have a golden player. He led the Canucks in PIM, short-handed goals, and plus/minus. He also scored 3 gamewinners, tied for second on the Canucks last season in that category and was second on the team in hits. Essentially, you're an idiot. Burrows is not a player that is easily replaced.
  10. Happy Birthday! :P
