Burrows, Hiller, Garon named week's '3 Stars

Alexandre Burrows gave hat sales in Vancouver a boost last week.

With more than a little help from linemates Henrik and
Daniel Sedin, Burrows had the week of a lifetime, scoring 3 goals in back-to-back games to become the first Canuck since Petri Skriko in 1987 to get hat tricks in consecutive games -- and triggering a lot of hat-throwing at GM Place. His first hat trick helped the Canucks rally from a 2-0 deficit to beat the Columbus Blue Jackets, 7-3, on Tuesday, and he scored three of Vancouver's four goals in a 4-0 win against Phoenix two nights later.

Burrows didn't need a lot of time or shots to record his big week. He scored his 6 goals on nine shots and played only 34:30 combined in the two games. Ironically, he saw more ice time in the Canucks' other game last week -- getting an assist in 21:11 Saturday in the Canucks' 3-2 shootout loss to Calgary.




As per NHL.com

posting in this thread is almost a rite of passage for CDC noobs, they eventually see it and realize what's going on, see it bumped nearly every game, and become part of something totally epic lol.

Lets say we keep Burrows for his whole career, for arguments sake.

And, for fun we'll say that is 10 more years.

Will this thread still be around?

How long will it be?

Will it surpass the God thread in pages? Has it already?




My point is that this thread shows no sign of slowing down, and neither does Burrows.

So, what kind of a future does this thread have?

A bright one, it seems.

The God thread has nearly 2000 pages, I doubt this will ever surpass that.

The God thread has to be one of the biggest forum topics anywhere.

On another note... Burrows scores.

Burrows is nothing without the Sedins.

The Sedins without Burrows just need to find another hard worker plug that goes to the net.

Hes got a ton of heart and grit but when it comes to being a goal scorer hes lost without the Sedins.

I said he was nothing without them, I rephrased that.

I would be somewhat sad if Burrows got another hat trick tonight just based on the fact that it wouldn't be in 3 straight games. However 3 hat tricks in 4 games must be some kind of record?

GO GET EM BURROWS!!!

A phenomenal??

Yes Burrows is the beneficiary of the talent of the Sedins but he has outstanding work ethic and he compliments their style of play by opening up the ice for them and by knowing where to go in order to cash in on their feeds

(Well said HV...nailed it)

There's enough love in this thread for all the Burrdins.

I get your point, but here's what you fail to see - this was NEVER expected of Burrows (except by a few of us). We all expected the Sedins to flourish and have waited to see it unfold...Burrows has exceeded expectations.

Give him credit where it's due - the NHL's star of the week...can we not bask in that for a minute?

Not to take anything away from either of the Sedins...they are gifted and I thank God they're on our side. But Burr is on a roll and it's mostly due to the fact that he is willing to go to the dirty areas...the places where he gets slashed and bashed, yet is highly effective.

He's a phenomenal too.
