Adarsh Sant Posted January 15, 2017 Share Posted January 15, 2017 Ok so I know I'm going to get some flack for this one but do you think it's possible that the Canucks retire Alex Burrows' #14? He has one of the best stories in regards of making the NHL and he is one of the few Canucks to play over 800 games with the team. All the other Canucks players who have played over 800 games have had their jersey retired, with exception to the Sedins who are still active (and we know that theirs will be retired for sure). He has made a huge impact in the Vancouver community and on the ice. He scored arguably the biggest goal in Canucks history (slaying the dragon). He is hated around the league which is why we love him even more. He has played with tenacity for 11 years and possibly 1 or 2 more to come. Now I know his stats aren't pretty when compared to the other names hanging from the rafters, but he is a Canuck whose name will never be forgotten. Do you think Burrows deserves to have his number retired? My judgement may be impaired by the fact that he is one of my two favourite players ever. If not, should he be in the Ring of Honour? Thoughts? I know games played isn't always the most important factor, but consider that this guy was in the ECHL at one point. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
