#Canucks forwrad Alex Burrows agent Paul Corbeil tells CKWX talks are in the intial stages for a new deal for Burrows.


Corbiel says the #Canucks called him 2 weeks ago and expressed interest in getting a new deal done.


Burrows is a u-f-a next summer and has set himself up for a nice pay day. Corbiel says Burrows #1 choice is to re-sign with #Canucks.


Corbiel says the 2 sides have not talked #'s yet but you gotta think when they do - the #'s won't be small.



Get it done MG. This guy deserves a fair contract this time around. I love the Canucks but....if Burrows goes, my loyalties to the team will as well...

I like burrows but can't help but think the Sedins boosted his play. He should get the salary of a 'good' second liner IMO.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

Which these days is around $4M.

4 years at $4M per sounds about right. 100% raises should happen to all of us.

Multi-year deal at $4.1 million sounds good for me.

I just hope Burrows' agent doesn't gouge the Canucks saying "you better give my client market value after playing the past four years well below it".

Honestly as much as I love him, I think it's a good time for him to bank what he's really worth. I can't believe he signed for so low, but it kind of feels like we took advantage of him. If another team can offer him better then all the power to him.

I can't seem us offering more than Kesler money as the top end. Clearly, he is worth more than 2M, which is way beyond a discount IMO. There would probably be a team on the open market willing to offer 6M would be my guess.

With all that in mind, I think he will sign with us in the range 4.0-4.5M for 3-4 years, which is pretty fair.

That would then mean Burrows signs somewhere else; see Ehrhoff.

Pay him $6.000 MIL so we can all join in hands and throw him under the bus after he is deemed greedy by CDC members.

If Bieksa can be given a 5 year contract at 30 years old, I see no problem with giving Burrows a 5 year contract at 31 years old.

21M over 5 years @ 4.2M/yr although for burr I'd go as high as 5M a year.

Of course the Sedins boosted his play, just like they boosted the play of Klatt and Carter. :)

However, look at all of the guys who didn't get it while playing with the Sedins: Samuelsson, Bernier, Pyatt...

The Canucks got lucky with Burrows. The only significant downside is that he isn't a couple of inches taller and around 40 lbs of muscle heavier.

I sign him for anything. As long as he stays. This guy has been clutch. Deserves a Raise. Good job by MG to get this done right now so he can plan out to resign Edler later.

and mess up locker room chemistry. great idea. /sarcasm

4m or so per year should be fair. Hopefully he gets what he deserves and it fits in our cap structure his last
contract was way too low

Burrows never took a pay cut. Last time he signed, he was an undrafted career 3rd liners with heart. Instead of signing at his market value for 1-2 years, he went for security and signed for 4 years. Then, he started playing like a 1st/2nd liners. But at the time, his true value was 2M$ no more.

Even $3.5m is too much.

$2.5m - $3m should be the limit. He was the one who said he was a third liner and should be paid like one (pretty sure it was in his interview after he signed his first 'big' contract with the team).

Key word "was" a third liner. He now plays like a 2nd liner/fringe 1st liner, and great chemistry with the Sedins.

If Sedin, Sedin, Kesler, Booth, Bieksa, Hamhuis, Garrison, Ballard, Schneider, and Luongo can all be paid 4+ million, Burrows getting that much shouldn't even be an argument.
