Provost Posted December 15, 2016 Share Posted December 15, 2016 Honestly I don't care the return, and am not trying to ditch Burrows. He has always talked about how special it is for him to play in Montreal, last time he even said something like "I would pay to be able to skate on this ice". You really can't overestimate the reverent connection lots of francophones have with that team. The guy has been nothing short of wonderful for us for his entire career, and you couldn't ask for a better team guy. He deserves a chance to win a Cup and even more, would be overjoyed to get to hang a Canadiens jersey with his name on it in his man cave. Montreal is reportedly looking to stock up and is even interested in Doan for some veteran leadership and grit. You can't tell me that Burrows isn't a warrior they would want on one of their bottom lines for a long playoff run. He is a guy that has been there and knows what it takes. JB has said he won't ask players to waive their NTCs, but it is an easy conversation to have to ask Burrows if he would be interested in that idea without trying to force it. "Hey Burr, we are more than happy to have to you for the rest of the season, but if you want this chance you deserve it." Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
