Burrows? Do We Really Need Him?

Yes we do. To coach our PP! 
i realize that Montreal would always be at the front of the line for Alex’s services, but dagnabit, I wish I our management had made an offer he couldn’t refuse.

 Now I can see him eventually moving up to head coach there.

Beat me to it! 

 

He's in our Ring of Honour. He shouldn't be allowed to coach an opponent -_-

This is how pathetic our overall history of the Canucks has been. This was not something that took us to the cup. 

 

I want to see this club win a cup. 

 

I want this management to take their time and finish the rebuild.  Do what it takes to win a cup.

I agree with your last point, but I don't agree with your first. While we don't have a cup, I'd say the Canucks have a great history around the team. The Twins alone bring so much lore to our history.

 

A massive trade to bring home a pair of twins, who end up being some of the most respected players in the NHL and spend their entire career playing together for the same team. Scoring the winning goal in their last game was a cherry on top.

 

I feel like you can go down the list with our players and stories and we have a lot of top teir things that have happened to our team, and some real stinkers in the history books as well. Both good and bad make for an interesting history, and I would definitely say the Canucks have that.

*****looks at your avatar of Linden*****

 

Keenan tore the heart out of the club by dealing Linden.  But he did get a huge haul in that trade.  Assets which Burke turned around & used to help draft the Sedins.

 

But as Stannis says (with respect to Keenan):

You can’t take a moment to celebrate the smaller victories? Anything less than perfection isn’t good enough? Do you have kids?

It's hard to believe it's been 10 years since the dragon-slaying goal.

 

Here is my initial reaction when he scored that goal:

 

BUREOWS ;)

 

Going back to that thread at that time.  Great memories.

 

Love this pic that was posted in there a few pages later.  I don't know if maybe they were re-watching Burr's goal. But it brings a tear to me eye seeing how much of a close team they were then.

I swear that Bettman and/or the Boston alumni running the league back then made a deal with the devil and switched the Final to one that was played in an alternate universe. The one that was supposed to be played here was instead played on the evil Earth that is equal opposite of us behind the Sun. And we got theirs. The actual destined history was for us to have won the Cup that year. Everything pointed to that. The Sedins and Burrows, and the rest deserved to win that series, and it was pulled out from under us by some kind of black magic..........+ Kelly Sutherland.

I am not saying that there is not great things to look back on. The twins gave some outstanding hockey for years. 

 

What I am saying is that it is time to focus on a cup. Nothing else.

I have spent 40 plus years celebrating some of the great hockey moments. We have seen everything but a cup. 

 

Build with one focus. A cup.

LB shooting arrows back at Burrows..

He looks great in Montreal, I’m sure his enthusiasm and not-so-long ago playoff experiences are spiriting the Habs along.

Good Luck Alex,  get your lips on it this time.

Nice move, SS, reviving this classic thread.

 

Dragon Slayer raising Dragon Slayers in Montreal...love that Josh Anderson, Bo's buddy, scored two big ones tonight.

LOL, I typed Montreal do we really need them and my internet cut out so I scrapped it.  

 

Was thinking about this thread tonight when I posted the old Burr kitty pic.

That clip showing Bur pointing to the rafters after the win was pretty special IMHO. Bur moves from player to coach and still honors Luc. Truly, a quality person!

Now that was a team.

 

Feel like we have a group of independent contractors on this club, in comparison.

Kely Sutherland should be boo'ed every time he set foot in  Rogers. I recall some one on here mentioned they went to HIghschool with him ( Richmond ) and how much he hated the Canucks.
