Toews Posted January 19, 2016 Share Posted January 19, 2016 After 6 years of ripping on people's proposals I think it's finally my turn to face the music. So my first proposal aims at trying to revitalize a struggling team (Montreal) and bring some much needed depth to a thin Vancouver blue line. To Montreal Burrows (4.5M x 1) To Vancouver Emelin (4.1M x 2) The contract figures are based off of memory so feel free to correct me. I haven't looked into the cap figures of Montreal so I have no idea whether they can afford the extra salary. It is a swap of bad contracts but I think each player could use a change of scenery. The immediate concern for the Canucks is that they are adding an extra year of Emelin but IMO Burrows has become redundant at this point. I think Emelin does bring some physicality to his play that Vancouver could use more. I know some here would rather receive a pick or prospects in return but I have a feeling Burrows at full salary is undesirable. I think Burrows waives because aside from the obvious reason, he gets to go a team better suited to win now. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
