Watch Grenier, Shinkaruk and Chaput make comebacks to the NHL quickly.

 

If anyone has the book on how to make it, it’s Burrows.

How much would it be for to trade for burrows to finish his career with a Stanley cup vancouver? Tanev +3rd rounder?

Insert 'Ballard, Raymond, and a 3rd' joke here.

That is because it is pinned.

 

Personally I would have unpinned it this off season with no disrespect toward Burr.... loved the guy for what he was able to accomplish in his career. I hope he has as much success coaching in Laval (except against the Comets) as he did on the ice as a player.

Pretty much this. I just don't see how this is respecting or disrespecting him, but I guess I can see how some people can get attached to certain things.

 

But we need to learn to move on.

Burr will be a welcome addition back to the organization after learning and perfecting the art of coaching. Maybe as a pk specialist coach or something.

He will need to be fired, or let go first

 

He was pretty loyal to the Canucks as a player for getting his break here

He will be just as loyal to his new team, giving him a new career now

He also has kids who are growing up and the focus shifts as that happens.  Your world and priorities change and decisions are made on them, not self.  I just am so happy that he's going to remain connected to hockey, a game that gave him everything but he gave everything to.

Burrows thread unpinned?  It's like the Linden trade all over again.

The Burrows thread;  Do we really need it anymore?

 

If this is the beginning of the end of this thread. I'll just say before it sinks down into the forgotten pits of pages past, that I hope somehow he makes his way back to the Canucks organization.  And then we can bump this thread up again!   I hope he's back soon at any rate, to accept his place in our Ring of Honour!  Good luck Alex!

 

Win da Turd forever!

As much as I love Burrows (still the only jersey with name & number I own) it's well past time to let go.

Oh, I'm fine with it being unpinned.  But it always strikes me as odd that at least half the posts on this forum are meant to stifle Canucks discussion, shut down threads, unpin threads, call for a lock, etc.

I never understood pinning this tbh, I understand the love the fans had for him because yes he was a great player for this organization, but he was no Sedin, Naslund, Bure, Linden, type of star player. Why no Sedin thread was ever pinned instead I'll never understand, especially since they retired here and are possibly the best Canucks ever, but they don't deserve a pinned thread only Burrows does... It's like CDC felt Burrows was more important to this organization then the Sedins ever were, by showing that will pin the Burrows thread but not a Sedins one, never understood that logic here.

It was the thread itself as opposed to holding Burrows in higher regard than the Sedins.  If there is an iconic thread here, that's the one.  And it got pinned when Burrows accepted a trade out, which well preceded the Sedins' retirement (for which the forum was temporarily renamed "Sedin Talk").
