if anything ROH we can't retire everybody's jerseys after Bure I don't see jerseys being retired unless the same Sedin is on the back of it.

I'm not supporting retiring #14 but you know as well as I do that there are some fans out there that want his jersey retired

Let's wait until he plays out his career here, at which point we'll celebrate his accomplishments. Impossible to know at this point, as he's right in the thick of things and this party ain't over yet.

I say we elect him Prime Minister, put a large statue of him on the roof at GM Place and name every baby that is born after him. For a start....

Totally agreed on all your points Deb, especially the last sentence. Prime Minister Alexandre Burrows sounds sexy ;)

Way too early to tell right now. He's entering what I would consider to be the prime years of his career. We need to wait for them to play out before we judge one way or another.

He's been a great clutch player, but he's not even close to jersey retirement yet. Not even Ring of Honour yet in my mind. If he has 4 more good years, then maybe the Ring of Honour.

But the fact that there are currently 3 jerseys hanging up in Rogers Arena, next to 0 Stanley Cup banners, is pretty laughable.

As of right now, MAYBE ROH. It's far too soon to tell what's going to happen in the next few years. I do not see a retirement, no matter how many dragons he may slay with clutch, edge-of-your-seat, 'get on my back boys, n watch this', series winning goals. Unless, of course, it's a string of Cup winning goals...

Let's see that Stanley Cup Champion banner, first.

I'm gonna say neither. Just because he's a fan favorite doesn't necessarily mean he's good enough for either honor.

Burrows at this point in his career is a poor man's Greg Adams.

Adams was known for driving the net and consistent scoring.

Adams scored clutch playoff goals too. Triple OT in round 3 to knock off the Leafs. Double OT in game 1 of the 94 finals.

There is no chatter at all of retiring his number or ROH for Adams. This alone speaks volumes for Burr's chances.

There is really no chance that Burr gets his jersey retired unless he wins a couple of individual awards and leads this team to a cup.

As much as I love Burr, these kinds of questions are kind of ridiculous. And we wonder why other fanbases like to poke fun at us.

many years left on his contract and many years to go before the team has a decision to make.

Right now, Niether.

Jersey retirement is ridiculous as people have said.

ROH is more likely but I'm not sure he has earned it yet.

Unless has 4 or 5 30 goal seasons in him or he plays at a fairly high level with the Canucks for 7+ more years i'd have to say neither. He has never won an individual award or lead the team in scoring. He is already 30 with 270 career points. Six more 50 point seasons would put him in line with Gradin for career points and around 1000 games played if he stays healthy. Gradin lead the team in scoring twice and had two 80 point seasons.

It is not impossible but Burrows has a lot left to prove before he is ROH worthy.

If he plays another 7 years and gets the same point production as his first seven he would end up with 540 points, 10 points behind Canuck great Tomas Gradin who is sixth all time, and 112 points ahead of the number 7 player all time, Pavel Bure. Decent numbers but definitely not jersey retirment. I voted neither but mabe the ROH if he gets a cup or two.
