      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Report] Canucks working on new deal for Burrows

256 posts in this topic

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.

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.

Really? Wow!!!

I love Burrows but if he left the Canucks, oh well, move on.

$4m per is too much, $3.5m per, tops

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).

11 year $41 Million contract for a $3.75 Million cap hit $10 Million on the first year and $5 Million for the next two. Plus a $3.75 Million dollar signing bonus.

I'd go 3.5 x 5 Year or 4.0 x 4. People have to keep in mind that the cap is going to keep going up and so to will the average salary. These numbers will look pretty reasonable at the end of the contract term.

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.

imo one of the greatest all time canucks already. not skillwise, but one of the greatest men to put on a canucks jersey.

-takes way more abuse than anyone from top defenders due to fishing the puck out for the twins for all these years now

-comes through in the most clutch moments, and not just a sedin banking the puck off him but taking the game in his own hands

-took the biggest discount to help the team sign better players

-always the last player off the ice high fiving every guy before he heads down the tunnel

-is the absolute definition of hard work. not only was even making the ahl an extremely long shot, but he found a way to compliment 2 of the best players in the world and stick on the top line of a top contender in the nhl

-is also one of the best penalty killers in the league

i understand the argument that he really should be a second third liner, but he's done so much for this team that he deserves his paycheque this time around. if they let him walk for anything under 4.5 ill be pissed. i dont think he would make them pay that much but if it really comes down to him staying or leaving, id give it to him. your not going to find a free agent for that much that will bring as much as he brings

True, but I'm cheap and if I was a GM I'd have trouble spending to the cap floor.

(Burrows is currently one of the only Canucks I like so I'd love for him to stay. I just feel beyond $3m isn't wise.)

Just hand him a blank cheque. Worth whatever he writes down.

Purcell just re-signed for 3yrs, $4.5mil per. If Burrows accepts less than that, then he is indeed taking another paycut.

I'm more worried about an Edler deal than Burrows. Burr deserves anywhere in between 4-5 mill and will get it. Edler is going to demand at least 5-5.5 which wont look nice on our cap situation. We could be getting in trouble here...

No way does burrows get more then 3.5 per year. Take the sedins away and you have a 2/3rd liner who can play that grinder/pk/chip in a gold type of player. 4 year 14 million makes a lot of sense.

Burrows value is highly related to the Sedins staying. Playing with the Sedins, Burr is easily worth 4 mill. Without the Sedins, I'd say no more than 3. So if he signs 3.5 for 4 years then if the Sedins stay, it's a bargain and if they don't, we haven't overpaid by too much.
