Mentor young guys, or carry old guys?

His whole world has changed.

No longer is he a part of a team in transitional turmoil. Back into the thicket, fighting for 1st Place in their Division.

They've got back to backs coming up with Montreal which could go a long way in determining 1st place. Burr probably feels like he's living in a dream world right now, Neo

Love Burr.  He was a great Canuck, and deserves this opportunity.  Glad to see he's doing so well there too.

FYI he had a lot more fans than Deb. Just read through this thread.

I say leave the thread up until the end of the season out of respect and also that it will take that long to just get used to the idea of the Canucks without Burrows.

 

I always wanted someone to ask him if he had ever seen this thread and if not show it to him, explaining when it started etc., and ask what he thought. Maybe someone has.

 

Never thought of that,

 

I would never recommend any player ever look at this board and I'm sure the team tells them the same thing.

 

But in this case........I think he should see it, it takes a very special player to have something like this happen, it really is a tribute like no other.

I recognize what the twins have done here but I have to agree. Their play sure has fallen this year, especially on the defensive side, a lot of times they seem very disinterested to me. 

 

You guys fail to understand what it is the twins are doing,

 

They are TRUE troopers and willing to do what it takes to get this team to the next level

 

I.E Henrik and Daniel are frontline tank commanders

 

I guarantee they will not suck like this to start next year, but they want to start next year with Nolan backing them up.

 

C'mon, first the frigging mumps, then all of a sudden the twins hockey I.Q drops 50 pts?

 

Their game has never relied on athleticism, so this whole "Lost a step" theory doesn't add up,

 

The kind of boo-boo's we've seen are the type committed by guys who don't know what they are doing, that ain't the twins, never will be.

 

I'm sure most of you will stay in denial about this, and then next year talk about how amazed you are that they've found their game.

 

This is actually a great sign, it shows the entire organization is willing to do what other teams have been doing for years, and that the Canucks could potentially be better sooner rather than later.

 

The Twin would like to retire after skating the cup around Rodgers ice, do you really think there is ANY shot at all of that happening if we don't get some top notch new talent? and get it FAST? This is how the Penguins, Blackhawks, Kings, Ducks, Bruins ect ect. got thier top line talent, it's how we got the Twins, it's how we got Linden..

 

And by the way, if you don't think shenanigans is standard operating procedure for NHL franchises, go look up how we got Bure, we basically lied and said that he had played more games then he had and was therefore eligible to be drafted, total B.S of course but nobody could prove that he HADN'T thus the Canucks played the system for a pick and had the player in on the scam,

 

But in 2017 that could never happen right?

 

Anyway, I support what they are doing and look forward to the incredible return of their hockey sense early next year

My issue isn't them tanking to get a better pick, my issue is if you are going to hold young guys accountable on the defensive side of the puck and your "starts" aren't doing their part (on purpose or not) it's showing a mixed message to the young guys. A coach pulls a young guy off a line for not back checking and then 22 or 33 don't do their part, get scored on and continue with top minutes.

So somebody was being treated differently than someone else? This is not a new thing, happens throughout life.

Would one of the moderators please take this topic down. Burrows does not play for Vancouver so there is no need for a post.

If there is no need for a post, why did you post?

I posted because a topic asking if we need Burrows when he is no longer a Canuck is pointless....much like your reply.

480 pages, been weeks since Burrows was traded, seems the mods have already decided, making your original post pointless.

I think you would have the majority of true Canuck fans onboard with having this thread pinned for eternity.  It would embody the spirit of burrows completely.   Always defying odds and when people call for you to be done, you prove to everybody you still have it.  Guy is a class act and is deserving of nothing but adoration from Canuck Nation!

Didn't Matt Cooke's girlfriend or wife read these forums and complain about what was said about him back in the day? I remember hearing something about that.

As if we didn't know already, yes, Vancouver really needed Burrows ;)

And though it’s bittersweet, for sure — I’m leaving with the sincere hope that this trade will be able to help the Canucks build their future.

You sure did Burr, you netted us another piece moving forward and we are grateful for that - perhaps you can reap the benefits in the near future? I hear they still have your locker stall nameplate B)
