Why do I always get the feeling that PIM's are listed as a positive attribute?

Penalties are not good. All that says is he was in the box 50 odd times when his team could have been even strength and he could have been scoring.

I noticed the American media started doing that. They will list a guy's goals, assits and penalty minutes as if those are the 3 big stats.



lol thank you
46 goals and 83 PIMs is alot better then 34goals and 111 PIMs

I was there at the Burrows signing, but I decided to leave because I was way back in the lineup and it was pretty obvious i wouldn't get a chance to meet him.

When did the tickets run out? It seems like it ran out faster than previous signings.
Did people like go super early to get a ticket and then go back home, then come back later?

Wow, I went to the one at Cambie last week and was only the 61st and I arrived at 12.
Why is it so much more packed at this one? If I knew they were handing out tickets like that I would've gotten there earlier :/

I didn't get a ticket today but was towards the beginning for the non-ticket line, so I still got to see him. :D

hey people my name is bernier.bertuzzi here :|
why not to what ? his liesense plate number ?

Yes to his license plate number. But I was just kidding lol

With the damn Sunday buses, I can't even get to White Rock by 10 am. It's disappointing when you can go from Langley to Vancouver in 1:30 hours, but it takes the same time to get from North Surrey to South Surrey. If the system had been better built, I think I would have had a decent chance.

Which part of Surrey do you live in?

Since it was the grand opening (instead of some promotion thing..), it was A LOT more advertised. They were announcing it on The Beat and had ads in 24 and Metro whereas last week, they didn't.

Yes it is true, my water broke at the same time Alex Burrows drove into the Best Buy South Surrey parking lot today. Thank you to all the great staff at Best Buy, especially Tim the General Manager for helping us.

After spending 4.5 hours waiting for Burrows' arrival, I guess my baby had different plans for me as I spent the next hour in the ladies washroom.

Funny enough, when I was finally ready and they escorted me to meet Alex before we left for the hospital, we were almost in the exact same spot we would have been had we stayed in the line up.

A huge thank you to the sweet lady from behind us in line, that helped me as my husband ran to get me new clothes from the Walmart! If you happen to read this or know the lady I am referring to please let me know.

We are currently back home and labour is progressing. Talk about a memorable first!

Well if it's a boy then we're all in for a surprise...on the way to the hospital I told my husband that Alex would make a cute, sweet middle name. I think he'll go for it.
