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.

I'd rather loose Kesler then Burrows at least he can play in all area's of the game and is reliable unlike Kesler who can not be depended on

Because he's so weak on all parts of the ice, with two 70+ point seasons, and a Selke Trophy, can't rely on Kesler at all apparently.

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

I remember cursing about the coaches shoot-out choices and yelling to put Burrows in. When they finally did, I was already celebrating before he even touched the puck!

Not only does the thread keep giving, Burr keeps racking up more highlight reels!

Wonder what is next? I want to see him score one from behind the net off the back of the goalie....

He's been terrible so far this season, but was pretty bad down the stretch last season too. I think his time with the Sedins is well and truly over, Kassian was fantastic with them and even Hansen shined.

Burrows should be delegated to the 2nd or 3rd line. He has past chemistry with both Kesler and Lapierre, and plays too much of a north-south game nowadays, skating far too much to play with the twins who need a stationary rock in front of the net, which is exactly what Kassian and Hansen are.

He'll still get plenty of ice time playing on the 2nd unit PP and 1st PK, but doesn't deserve Sedin-time anymore.

He's just starting slow; the twins' timing is a little off too despite them still putting up points. I'm not worried about Burr at all.

Starting next year Burrows will be a cap hit of $4.5 million for 4 years. He needs to be a 1st/2nd line player for that amount of $$.

Kesler was lucky to score 20 this year since the injury to Morrison allowed him to do so.

I doubt Kesler would ever break 15 goals in his career again.

You guys likely didn't see it on TV (away from the play - puck had gone), but Burr got plastered, face first, into the boards in the opener. Not sure if he got his bell rung a bit, but it was right before he took a penalty (and things started to unravel that game). Just something to consider.

He'll be fine...players have peaks/valleys but his determination, work ethic and love for the game mean you won't ever hold him down for long. Not worried.

Burr has been looking a little lost out there, but it's only two games in and such a long time off. Give it time. His time with the Sedins might be over, but that won't stop him. He was putting up points last year on the third line with Pahlsson and Hansen, and he put up points when he went to the International Hockey Tournament too. Definitely doesn't need the Sedins to elevate his game.

He is one of the best two-way players in the league, I love it when he's on the ice because I know the puck isn't going to end up in our own net! Most likely end up in the other teams net. Your just looking for attention because if you truly believe the stuff you said about him you have a brain the size of a sliver...

This was almost as mind numbingly moronic as the post you quoted.

Are you trying to be clutch 3.0?

Just in case it gets lost in the midst of all the Kassian celebrations, thought I'd bump this and point out that Big B can now add centreman to his resume.

Burrows, is there anything he can't do!?
