Bang on HW.

I'd trade Burrows for a 6th round pick right now. Dumping his contract for squat is a good deal.

And thats worst case scenario, at best, youngsters make the team at camp, over-perform all season,the remaining core rebounds and is revitalised, the team gel's and takes it to another level in the injury-free playoff's...hmmm S/L's right,
i am drunk :cheers:

The Nucks may end up in the Connor McDavid race, but somehow I doubt anyone who's kicking the tires on Iggy and Miller wants to be in said race... time will tell, but I don't think GMJB is clearing cap space to save the Italians money.

Exactly. This is a FA owned team, playoffs are the goal here because they equal revenue and an increase in season ticket holder base. Miller, Iginla, Stasny. Bye bye Burrows and Hansen. Book it Francesco.

I'd squat and dump on Burrows' contract right now.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
