it's an article from last night before Burrows was signed, but:

In his last negotiation, which led up to the trade deadline in 2009, the Canucks held the hammer. They had an offer on the table from another team and were ready to trade Burrows if he didn’t sign the four-year extension.

I wonder if we would have 'slayed the dragon' if he was traded. I mean, we probably would (hopefully) but wonder who it would've been. Can't ever imagine #14 in a different jersey.

Glad that didn't go down! I think he appreciates the fact that the Canucks gave him this shot. No Canucks = No Burrows, I think he'll retire a Canuck!

Yeah. I can confirm this. Steve Y told me that there was a possibility I was going up north at around that time.

It was probably a pretty good offer if we even considered trading Burr, too bad we will never know what it was.

Regardless, I'm glad he's still a Canuck, and will be for a long time to come.

I remember it was Burr and someone for Brad Richards. or it was burrows plus for Tampa first round pick (hedman) Glad canucks didnt trade him. Who would of scored this goal if he got traded?

I think it was Burrows, Bieksa and '09 first for Tampa's '09 first (Hedman). The Brad Richards proposal in '08 kinda went something like Kesler, Edler and Schneider for Richards+. Where would our team be now if we made those trades?

I always thought Burke heard that at the draft, so it probably wasn't that deal that Botchford is referring to.

In any event I think, if it did happen, it should be water under the bridge now. 4.5 seems really fair and it solidifies the fact that Burrows is 4th on the pecking order behind the twins and Kesler. They are also going to be paying him that money until he's 36 or 37.

E: It's not Richards guys, he was in Dallas that season.

"Canucks, Burrows a long way apart in contract talks"

haha, nice story, but 24 hours later Burrows already inked.

stay tuned for more "news" from the Province

and while we are on it - don't buy the way the 2009 context is framed either - weak link source.
