What a great finish for Burrows this season. 35 goals and 32 assists for a player who only five years ago seemed destined for the minor leagues is pretty inspirational. Keep up the good work in the playoffs Posted Image

It would be only fitting. If I could chose, I'd want him to get the Stanley cup winning goal as well.

I've been wearing my Burrows jersey game days and non game days but I like to mix it up and wear my Rypien's also.


Not only tomorrow but every game until we win the cup.


I'll still be wearing it after the cup, I'm a Canucks fan I don't just hang my jerseys up come end of season, I wear and show Canucks pride almost 365 days a year.

Something interesting I noticed, Burrows now has as many goals as assists in his NHL career. 85-85-170.

Go Burr!

Burrows currently sits 43rd overall all time in Canucks scoring with 170 points. Hopefully he can one day be top 10 which is currently 407 points but Kesler will likely make it there before him so Burrows will need 449 points to make it in the top 10.

So you seriously thought that he would surpass 30 goals? You would be lying if you said that you did. No one sane expected the Canucks to be one of the highest scoring teams and no one though Burrows would hit 35.

I had a bet with one of my flamer fan buddies that Burrows would atleast match his total from last year. Burrows did, my friend has to wear one of my Canuck jersey's for game one, plus buy a 24 pack for the festivities. i can't wait to drink the beer a Flame fan bought me while he is sportin a Nuck Jersey. Thursday can't come soon enough. Kinda weird how all of a sudden there are about five thousand new members on the Kings forum from Alberta. hhhhmmmmmmmm.

I know allot of people are going to scorch me for this but I fail to see the reason why nobody questions his ability to play in the nhl. Every game i watch with him in the lineup(all of them) I find myself screaming at the tv because of the stupid stuff the guy does. Personally i'd rather have any of the guys that are fighting for a spot on the team rather than burrows. Everyone's #1 reason they like this guy from what I read on this forum "He's great on the pk. Who cares! Anyone can do this thats fighting for a spot. He can't score and i'm tired of kesler carrying this guy on his back night after night, I'm tired of him losing the puck, falling down everywhere seriously this guy falls down a hundred times a night can't he skate its ridiculous, stupid penalties its endless. "He plays with grit" is another common description tossed out when his name comes up. That ok sure he pisses off guys but fails to do really be able finish that job off by being able to fight because he can't. IMOP he's an embarrassment to the team. Please Gillis let this guy go keep Krog or Pettinger or Brown whoever. let er rip.

Plus 1. I agree. I personally hate burrows. He can just score cuz he plays with the twins. I saw hansen, demo, Raymond, grabner, and bernier play with the Sedins and they were all good. people just like him cuz he can fet hat tricks. George laraque gets hat tricks for Gods sake! He is an overrated player. Also, he missed so much good oppurtunities last game which couldve got Hank more points. he always takes stupid penalties and is always falling down.

wow, just wow, unbelievable your point of view is, could be one of the dumbest here.

Burrows leads the NHL in short-handed goals with 5, leads the NHL in short-handed points with 7. I do believe the twins didn't help in any of those 7 points, he got them on his own.

Bernier was given the same if not MORE time with the twins, he failed to get anything going, heck Bernier don't even have anything generated by himself, be it PP, PK or even-strength.

Raymond also at a time paired with the twins, he didn't get much going. Grabner might have a chance be he's good with Kesler. Demo is more of a setup guy, he wouldn't fit in with Henrik being the setup guy already, Henrik needs 2 targets to pass and shoot, Daniel being one and Burrows the other. Hansen just don't have the skills.
