burrows is the hardest working player on this team. he's great on the pk and on the forecheck, and when he gets the opportunity, he puts away some of the prettiest goals ever seen. he does a lot more for the canucks than you think.


actually, this year, Hansen is the hardest working player...

Never thought this would be bumped for a World Championship goal but Burrows continues to surprise us all.

Great goal. Way to represent the Canucks!

Burrows sparked the comeback with his goal and the team rallied around him. What a player.

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.


Your boys playing for Team Canada right now ;)

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

If I could trade him for a non-annoying player of equal value I would.(especially for a good ol' boy type). Same goes for Lapierre, there's no reason the Canucks have to lead the league in pests/agitator types. Their effectiveness diminishes considerably in the playoffs, the refs hate them, the players hate them, the fans hate them, the media hates them, a villainous, dastardly team has no friends.

Oh yeah, I think you're right. We really could use guys that braid multi coloured friendship bracelets on the bench so that when they hit the ice they can distribute them in a gesture of world peace.

Then everyone would love them and they'd start a Livestrong type bracelet movement like hockey's never seen before.

Because we know that what wins hockey games is everyone on the ice and especially the opposing fans loving you...how else can you win? I mean goals like Burr's GWG vs Chicago mean nothing. Playing for your national team after suffering a concussion and sparking them in a comeback win is meaningless without the guys on the other bench's hugs and affirmation. And Lappy's endless energy just gets teams in a tizzy...how is that fair? For sure, I hear ya on this stuff. Who needs guys like this?

Annoying guys simply don't win those hockey popularity contests and that's what we're after, right?

Burrows is an awesome player, if everybody on the Canucks team would play as well and work as hard as he does we would be still in the playoffs. If you never want to win the Stanley Cup you get rid of great players like Burrows

Jeff Vinnick took a shot of me with Big Z (Zdeno Chara) the other day and a lot of people are wondering what was said. After practice we crossed paths in the hallway leading to the practice rink and he was asking me how I was feeling after leaving the game against his team Slovakia. He is one of the toughest guys around the NHL, but I’ve only heard good things about Chara as a person and for him to check on me proves to me that he is a very genuine guy.

Another goal for Burr! I cheer so much more when he scores compared to when other Canadian players do lol

I love how he went right to Eberle after the goal because it was him who took the hit to free up the puck for Burrows. Also loved his bear hug on the Kazakh goalie. How are the Canucks so hated lol
