[Discussion] Brent Burns!


Recommended Posts

Preface: There is really no reason for this thread. It is not well thought out. I am only making it because it would be fun, and hockey should be fun. Also we need a RHD. You've been warned. 

 

I want Brent Burns in a Canucks Jersey. That big Sasquatch would be really fun to watch on the Canucks alongside Quinn or OEL.

 

Would you do: Myers for Burns ($2m retained)? Money is a wash, but you've got 1 more year of Burns over Myers. Burns possibly to retire as he will only be earning $5M/season for the last 2 years of the deal.

My bad Nucker67. 

oh heck no, all good, Burns definitely has size, he's a RD and can contribute, but he's also 37 and makes $8 for the next 3 years. 

 

Maybe if we sent Myers and Dickinson the other way and SJ threw in a good prospect or high pick?

If we were planning on tanking and we got a first rounder in 2023 out of taking him, would consider it but that is about the only circumstance. 
‘They still have him and 5 more years of EK at $11M. Ouch worse than our $13M second pairing.

I am fortunate to work with Burnsey on our local non-profit here in Dallas-Fort Worth and know for a fact that if he is not a Shark, he would prefer to come to Dallas where he would essentially be the perfect replacement for Klingberg at the right cap hit.  His huge ranch is about four hours south of Dallas so it makes complete sense.  He is a primary ambassador for us and while we are headquartered up in Minnesota (where he started his career), our chapter here in Dallas is the fastest growing in the US.  Here he is signing a sweater for last year's silent auction.  Great dude!

Honestly, I would prefer we focus on finding the next Devon Toews, rather than chasing a has-been like we did with Myers and OEL.  Not a shot a these two, but i'd rather focus on finding someone that complement Hughes like Toews complemented Makar.  Someone young enough that can solidify that top pairs for multiples years.
