      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.

Utica if he still wants to play or some type of coach if he's retiring.

I love the idea of Burr playing in Utica for a few years as he winds down his career. He would be huge in showing the young guys how to be true hockey pros. When we had the Manitoba Moose farm team it was Mike Keane a 38 year old (age may be a bit off) NHL'er who had won the Cup with Dallas a few years back that was instrumental in the development of the last wave of great players we seen on the Canucks...Bieksa, Edler, Schnieder, Raymond, Kesler, Burrows, Hansen...they all learned off of him. Would love Burrows to become the next "Mike Keane" for us...but is he willing to do that? Not sure lol.

Sign him to a one-day contract to retire a Canuck on the same day as his ROH induction. Then give him a job as an assistant coach in Utica. I really believe that Burrows will make a great nhl coach one day.

 

He is truly a Canucks legend.

It's interesting that the hockey world is raving about how William Karlsson suddenly blossomed when he went to VGK.  From 9 goals and 6 goals in consecutive 81 game seasons in CBS he scored 43 with VGK.

 

Many years earlier Burrows went from 3 goals and 12 goals in 81 game season to 28, 35, 26, 28 goal seasons playing with the Sedins.   Sort of a similar path yet never seemed to get the same rave reviews Karlsson is getting.

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

I dunno... How many game 7 OT winners or Stanley Cup Finals OT game winners did Naslund score?

The fact that Vegas was the new shiny toy last season.

Naslund was by far the superior player between the two. Burrows doesn’t even come close.

PTO at best, if he decides to hang up the skates it can be in Vancouver after a few pre season games and as an appreciation give him a minor role in the organization if he’s up for it. No need for ring of honour or whatever the crappy alternative to raising a jersey to the rafters.

It's because he played with the Sedins and it is assumed the majority of the credit will go to them. Who did Karlsson play with? Good linemates, but unlikely Hall of Fame. Karlsson is deserving of his recognition. Plus 43 goals is more than any of Burrows' totals from 2 amazing passers who also didn't get much recognition of their own during their prime.

 

Burrows has been recognized a lot more for his career path to the NHL though.

Yes this is exactly what we need for a one year deal. I want burrows involved with future management and his last season should be as a Canuck. We need a gritty LW who can play with skilled players. We also need some veteran leadership. Burrows will come cheap, he can help green with the penalty kill, and log big minutes while our prospects ease into the NHL. 

 

We need to be bad for another season while we let our prospects develop. Give Pettersson a year in Utica with Dahlen to get used to the smaller ice. Next season we will get another good impact player at the draft and our rebuild we be almost complete. Bring the prospects who are excelling in Utica up during injuries. Let Utica have a chance at winning a calder cup. 

 

Yes also to Riley Nash

Let him play in Utica!!!

 

Man does that Dahlen trade look bad on Ottawa now more than ever. Depending on how good Dahlen becomes it could be one of the most lopsided trades in NHL history.

 

Also didnt we get a draft pick in this deal? Who did we end up picking?

You could put Pettersson on the wing to see if that helps and drop Archibald

After his buyout, maybe sign him to a small contract so that he can retire as a Canuck at the beginning of the season?  Give him a proper send off?

Good luck, Alexandre.

 

Possibly a PTO, maybe a one day contract to retire a Canuck along with Bieksa and Hamhuis.

Hamhuis will re-sign with Dallas.

 

Either 1 year at 3.5 mil or 2 years at 2.5 per year.

I’m wondering how the sens are going to look next year. Highway robbery for that trade for Dahlen.

i think the rcmp have been informed

expecting jb to be arrested before the day is out now

 

last i heard robbery is still a crime in canada

and since the criminal code is a piece of federal legislation

it applies equally across canada

so jb cannot hide behind ottawa being in ontario and vancouver being bc

 

good luck then jb

we'll send you many flowers and other trinkets

if you are forced to do time in some country club institution over this

 

i do think we need to resign burrows as well

so jb and him can plan their next crime together

we have a couple of great local criminal masterminds it seems

:wub:

When ranking all time great Canucks Alex Burrows outshines Naslund, not even close. Naslund not pass the 2nd round. Burrows a huge part in his team going to finals. Burrows and Kesler turning a team around and changing a defeatist culture. Never once saw Alex Burrows quit on the ice and I saw Naslund do that multiple times.

I'd be down to pay him a cheap one-year deal with limited 4th line minutes, but a one-day contract would also be sick. He'll be in the ROH pretty quick after he retires, I'd imagine.

Burrows is in the conversation with the top 10 fan favourite Vancouver Canucks of all time. He is all heart

Love Burrows.  We don't need wingers, would rather see Dahlen.  

One day contract and retire would make me happy.

Time to move on from the 2011 team. 

Only Edler left.

 

Best of Luck Alex, you are one of the all time great Canucks and one of the great inspirational stories in sports as a whole.

How old are you?

 

Did you just imply that Burrows was better than Naslund?
