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 think it is fair value.
1) He does benefit from the Sedins but I think that after so many years of consistency he should get some credit for improving their game

2) He is a heart and soul player who can change a game/season/series in an instant - plenty of examples

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3TbJ-SKrsYs"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3TbJ-SKrsYs
3) He has had success independent of the Sedin line that is almost worth the paycheque alone
- Crazy chemistry with Kesler at times
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0axDRw--gGU
- Solid penalty killer
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arHQ2hkLlZQ
- Statistically the best Shootout shooter on the team
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KK20DDZQG8A
- Hall of famer (ball hockey)
4) He works hard at both ends of the ice and he can make smart plays
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkPgqgZYZp8&feature=related

As far as his playoffs go... with the exception of last year where nobody had a good playoffs Burrows has never been a minus player.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awsfqrHSOdA&feature=related
5) From all indications he is a great guy to have in the locker room

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubWGGhgczLg&playnext=1&list=PLC778047385156675&feature=results_video

Also, the man is a living highlight reel (if you haven't noticed).

"It felt almost like it was a dream," Burrows said of his game-winner.
"But guys jumped on me and I couldn't breathe, so I knew it was right."

It was way back in 2008 when Burr wasn't as good. That said, it was still a massively stupid post. At that time, Burrows was about where Hansen is now.

It's a shame they got rid of the negative vote. This thread is legendary.

But yeah, we'll certainly need Burrows to be great this season.

Well the 20 assists might be a bit, but 10 goals isn't. I could see him getting more like 15 goals and 15 assists or soemthing.
