I didn't know it was anything to do with gulutzen nice to know. If you wanted what was best for the team you'd want to see bur come back next year, you just want room for your man crush.

Lol....I do like Kass   and believe it or not...I like Burr as well,,I just think he had a bad year and is expendable,,if he is on the team,, I will lurve him just as much...he is a good player,, when played properly...


anyway,, I will bow out of our little tiff as I have had a few Ruby Red Lagers and dont want to say anything to get me banned,,,lol


Im off to the casino..cheers,

This is 100% untrue.  Ever seen him in front of the net?  That's nothing to do with "timing", he battles hard there and gets crosschecked and hammered but stands in there. Watch closer.


And Burr, wasn't getting any of those interference, high-sticking or cross-checking calls, either...that's for sure!


I wonder if... now that we have a pseudo-insider like Benning at our helm...will the "winds of persecution" finally blow over for Burrows & his team?  Is there anyone out there feeling even a tad guilty over the barage of mistreatments.... doled-out towards Burr, in particular?  I think this will very much be a litmus-test year for Burr....to see if he can re-gain his "Mr. Clutch" status usefulness to the team. His defensive help has always been solid. Hansen likewise. Those 2 just need to develop some more consistancy of play in the offensive zone,.. as do the twins, again.Time will tell.


And, why not sign Burr up for some skating lessons with the same gal who taught Hamhuis & Booth?  His skating style is just so flailing & spastic,....is it any wonder - it has often given refs an easy excuse to confuse-it for embellishment, at times?  Make some small effort to fix that and see what happens, too. Just sayin'....

Last year was hard on the top six as Hank was injured,Burr was injured and Dan was not the same winger most especially when his brother is barely able to lace up skates and Burr was not with the twins.

If Kes is traded we get one (1) top six player in return. One player can not replace an entire  top NHL line.

The immediate challenge for new management is to replace Booth's salary with a legitimate  top six fwd and find an offensive d man.

Goaltending is a question mark as are players like Jensen,Kassian,Burrows,Dank,Markstrom.....

Jensen and/or Kassian must move up and play a second line role or some body or bodies on the present roster will be used to create the second line's missing piece.

New management have difficult tasks in front of them but JB is a talent evaluator and that is what makes this off-season and coming season interesting.

He will get a grasp on the talent on hand and begin upgrading.in the attempt to improve the roster..

As a hockey fan that watched this team break down I find that task interesting and potentially exciting.

Or, more likely, because he's a workhorse who can be used in a variety of roles. 
His work in front of the net and on the PK are invaluable and that versatility and willingness to do some of the dirty jobs is a huge asset.  Then there's the fact that he can score,too (especially in clutch situations).
How about no.

My point exactly. Emotionally attached.

But that's a lot of money for a guy who can ONLY seem to go to the net now. Holmstrom did that for nearly league minimum.

If the right deal comes along, I'm all for trading Burrows, if he's willing to waive. He's been a great player for us, but it might be time to move on, nothing against the guy.

If Burr can get back to form I would love to keep him. He is an intense, emotional and clutch player. Terrific on PK and PP screening.

If he can get back to 70+ games and 50+ points he should stay.

If we are trying to make the playoffs this year (I'm hoping that we're tanking), then we should get rid of him. He's a 3rd liner at this point making $4m+. Most successful teams use younger players to fill out the 2nd and 3rd lines. Burrows really doesn't fit in anywhere. Sure, he had injuries and a bad coach, but he's not getting any younger (33 years old). 


If we're tanking = keep him

I we're trying to make the playoffs = get rid of him

 Burr can still be successful with the sedins.  Guy just had 1 bad year and a freak load injuries playering under a mindless coach.  He's still got a few good years in him.  Guy just needs his confidence back.  Scoring 20 + goals this year shouldn't be a problem for him this year given he's healthy
