Clearly you never saw Courtnall play. Burrows is Burrows. Courtnall was awesome. Yes they both were undrafted, but to say Burrows is better, I don't think so.

I met Geoff in 1991 and he was a total prick to me.

I've been a fan of this team for 20+ years and I did see Courtnall play quite a bit. I thought it was a fair comparison between the two players. They both scored clutch goals, were both good playoff performers, both scored in bunches quite often, etc.
I only said that Burrows was better because I believed he had some better seasons as a Canuck. On closer inspection though, Courtnall does have mostly higher point totals, to be fair though he did play in an era when scoring was higher.

Still fantastic value for the player he is with the new contract. I'm tempted to grab myself a Burr jersey now...after I get my Schneider one.

an excellent occasion to resurrect this old favorite!

glad to know Burr will be around at least 5 more years, easily one of my favorite Canucks of all time.

This will look even better once the salaries are rolled back and he's only making 2.5-3mill a year...

Lol...had to have a good laugh at that. Now replace Gilman with Bettman and Burr with Fehr, and that would be a good one too!

Thank goodness Burr is locked up long term. I think he's one of the players that would take a 24 percent rollback on that piece of paper he's signing to play some damn hockey this year!

That's one sparkly Glock.

I like Burr, but that's a big caphit for a guy that I am not sold isn't just enjoying playing with two juggernauts. Very similar to Carter but more clutch, of course. Yes, I am not making a popular post here, but I would prefer a bigger player with the Sedins in the playoffs.

I was saying Lu-Urns...

That's why I don't like Glocks, they're too sparkly. ;) Congrats Burr.

Burrows!! Great signing! Despite what other teams' fans say, Burrows is all heart and performs when it counts.

The Geoff Courtnall comparison makes little sense. I've always thought the closest former Canucks comparison to Burrows is Martin Gelinas - similar style, only that Burrows has a higher 'hero' rating and more offensive touch.
