I'm loving watching Burrows succeed. This is a character I can cheer for.
I would love to see him get 40 this year, and I'm starting to think it might happen.

12 game to go. 8 goals in 12 with the twins is doable. no one else will be given a chance with the Sedin's now that Sammy's done for a while. 70 points is realistic too.

I hope he is being sarcastic. He just started a thread about Glass being the 8th defenseman for tomorrows game.

Now that Burrows has proved he is an NHLer, trade him for Crosby and Ovechkin. The Caps and Pens can alternate having Burrows until the Playoffs, then we trade Bernier for Burrows because they will say "Burrows? Do we really need him?"

Dumb, dumb thread. Burrows is happy for Kesler. Enough said. Why do people have the need to CREATE something out of nothing? Jeez.

Sedin $6.1 mil, Sedin $6.1 mil, Burrows $2 mil, why are you bringing up Kesler for, don't you think Burrows should be more peed at the money the Sedins got as he got more goals than either of them.

I'm sure Burrows feel fine. $2 million a season is still a lot of money. Most of us make only $70,000 a year. If anything, I think Kesler should donate a million to charity like the Sedins.

ya actually burrows must feel like crap right now, i remember kes is the one saying everyone should take a pay cut to keep a good team together, then burr signs for 2 mil. Then, BOOM kesler 5 mil. Which to me is a debatable deal. It's probably his market value without a hometown discount. So... i donno... if he wasn't gonna take a discount contract then don't start the talk in the first place.
Not taking away from the player that he is but i feel like he is a lot of talk both on and off the ice.

On a side note, anyone know how much BMO took during the westcoast express years?

Sedins and Kesler are plain better players overall. Burrows does get points, but he does not anchor a line. Burrows would probably fetch $3M max.

I was just thinking that Burrows could have gotten 3-3.5. Oh well. What's done is done. Lets just hope it works out in the end.

Burrows is a professional, and usually acts like one. He is probably happy for his friends, kesler, and the twins
