      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.

I don't want him back at this stage (as a player) but one of those 1 day contract type of things so that he can retire as a Canuck would be cool.

One-day contract for retirement purposes?

Ring of Honor, for certain. Jerseys in the rafters are reserved for the likes of the Sedins or Boesers of the team.

Even if a team does want Burrows, better to let him clear waivers first, get bought out, and then (hopefully) sign him to a cheaper deal.

It is weird to see most of our guys from the 2010/11 season being bought out or retiring. Also kinda weird to see Edler and Lou still meandering along as if they have at least a couple decent years left.

Sign him to retire. Would like to see him with the organization in some capacity at some point.

Did he leave a jersey in the broadcast booth up there with John and Shorty?

I suspect he isn’t going to want to uproot his family again, and will retire.

 

Unless of course a totally unexpected offer from a contender comes along.

As much as I love Burrows it's time for  new guys to take the helm and steer this ship  into unchartered waters

If DSP isn't open to coming here, then why not bring him back for PK duties? he's a good motivator too. 1 year 1 mil.

We don't need him but we love him. One-day contract is a good idea.

This. The page has turned. Hell of a Canuck he was. Instant ring of honour for Burr.
