That rant was cute . Learn to fucking read Einstein. I never once said that I wanted to trade Kesler for Chris Stewart. As for your love affair with the hair pulling french bitch. Keep on keepin on man. The dude is 33 has been trending downward for two + seasons and was on a 40 point pace last season. In your little world Burrows has great value. In the real world the team would be lucky to divest itself of his contract for a mid round pick or a prospect.
I was trolling you Blobby... settle down
Its hard to understand the anger you feel at Burr considering that you "are" a Canuck fan right?
Burr gives 100% every single time he's on the ice and has consistently been one of the hardest workers on this team in the last decade. I would even go so far to argue that he HAS been THE hardest working player on our team since he joined the team. I have never seen Burr take a shift off nor have I seen him bag it on a back check.
Is this an accurate assessment? You've been watching the same team that I have right?
And today, in a season where Burr is having the worst luck, you're referring to one of our cornerstone players that has played a massive role in the last 5 years in positioning our team amongst the top 5 teams in the league as a "hair pulling french bitch."
What have you done for me lately right?
Absolutely reeks of bandwagonism.
In terms of what Burr is worth, it's less about the numbers and more about the intangibles. He's proved that he can produce with real first line players, he can play on the PP, he can play on the PK, his puckhandling is that of a solid 2nd line player, he's faster than most, he's an agitating little shit, he's a hard worker, he's relentless on the forecheck and he's scored some pretty fucking clutch goals where it counts, in the post season.
He's got more value than you are giving him credit for and I think it would be a disgrace if he were discarded like trash for a 2nd round pick or a c level prospect.
