Burrows? Do We Really Need Him?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'll admit listening to his speech on the ice, I would say he will have a good career as a coach, so maybe the Canucks could do something, since we're all not a fan of Newell Brown :lol:, how about Burrows as Browns replacement......

Clutch is actually Alex Burrows himself.

 

holy $&!# imagine that for a second.

It's akin to realizin' Harrison Ford was actually, indeed a replicant! & here he ran around with that iris tester, thinkin' he was some hotshot bladerunner!

 

Anyone suspect Petey might be a replicant?(only get three yrs, right?)

My fave post of Deb's back in the early days of the thread. :towel:

 

I did a little browsing and the first several pages are pretty much a "who's that?" of CDC. That being said, there were some names I remember:

@hockeyville88

@PLOGUE

@Krazz

@WiLBoY

@BedBeats™2.0

@lick the envelope

 

....and some that are still around:

@kurtis

@Baggins

@Ghostsof1915

@D-Money

 

(and Deb of course)

 

I came in around page 13, but I think my best contribution was here: http://forum.canucks.com/topic/211587-burrows-do-we-really-need-him/page/34/ B)

Hah.. classic. I miss lick the envelope and his obsession over trading for Kris Letang and Eric Fehr..

I had spent a great deal of time justifying Burrows being on the team the season before this thread started. Then this thread came up and I thought 'here we go again'. Well I had tickets for the boxing day game when this thread was going strong. I had fully intended to get myself a H Sedin jersey as my Xmas gift to myself at that game. When I got to the team store the first thing I see is a Burrows jersey. Needless to say, after defending Burrows being on the team for a full year, I bought the Burrows jersey instead. Little did I know Burrows would wind up playing with the Sedins in Feb and they'd become one of the best lines in the NHL. I like to believe my buying his jersey changed the Burrows tide.

It's funny, because I remember a lot of the critics of Vigneault making the old "even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while" argument about his decision to put Burr with the twins...

 

Now, it seems like such a no-brainer, but at the time it was pretty much tantamount to Travis Green putting Schaller on a line with Petey and Bo.

No. No it isn’t. It’s like putting Burrows with the Twins. 
 

A perfect complement of talent.

So, maybe you could explain to us why you haven't bought a Lou Eriksson jersey yet?

Thank you for sharing that.  Nice to see Burrows getting some positive press and finally be appreciated and respected by others outside this organization.  

 

Ron McLean, Stephanie Auger...take note.

I bought Pettersson instead - And I take full credit for his success.

Well.   More tears.

There were no onions in that video, but my eyes sure don't agree.
