Well Burr is done, called it a career and it was a great story. Now he has joined the Montreal team in a coaching capacity for their AHL team.

 

Can this thread now get closed? Doesn't play for us and is coaching for a different NHL team. It had a great run of over 500 pages, time to retire this thread & move on from the past & look forward to the future

Are you still doing that Twitter thing  Patty O'Sullivan?

If Alex doesn't get injured for Games 4, 5, 6 and 7 of the Sens vs Penguins 2017 East Final, you can bet every penny you have that Ottawa beats Pittsburgh in either 5 or 6 games and go on to win the cup.

 

With Burr in the line up, Sens were up 2-1 ... a player like him would have been the dagger. What a shame an injury stood in his way and a cup :(

your opinion was an attempt to be a thread wrecker/closer so I gave my advice. I really don't care whether this thread is open or closed. I do find it funny that people that don't like it just can't stay away from it though.

That's probably because it is pinned and one of the first things we always see when going onto the Canucks forum page. I don't care that the thread remains open but I'm not a fan at all of it being pinned. That to me is an abuse of admin power. If it is relevant enough, it should stay afloat on its own power.

That is imo, an over exaggeration. Suspending or banning a poster for nothing, would be an abuse of admin power, this is more of a quirk.

I am sorry that it pains so many of you though.

This thread has deteriorated and out of control?  Hell the guy was traded 2 years ago now he is retired.  Time to let this memorial for Alex actually die.

Reminiscing...

Here's one from Ottawa... let's not forget, with Burrows healthy, the Sens were up 2-1 on the Penguins in the 2017 East Final. Had he not got injured, Sens woulda beat the Pens and won the cup that year. It's a real shame he never got his cup officially, but in my books, Alex has 2 cups... 2011 and 2017.

 

Burrows was the heart and soul of that team... Crosby is lucky he got injured and couldn't close out the series.

The Tryamkin thread in prospects has been locked and this thread continues to be pinned. This poor forum is being mismanaged.

Likely because it went from being about Tryamkin to a mud slinging thread. That typically results in a thread being locked.

 

There's no reason to lock this thread at all. Although I'm a huge Burrows fan, with his retirement (plus the Sedins) and having no involvement with this team, the thread should be unpinned. It's time to move on to a new era just as the team has moved on.

Surprised Salo wasn't decapitated in that event, considering his injury history.

Whew!  Made it.  

If we're going to close this thread I think someone should at least make a tribute post to the man dragon slayer and give it a proper send-off.

(Sure beats some of the other cra- content being posted in the off-season.. :ph34r:)
