Hank said Burrows looked good in practice, stone hands and all.


I have no idea how Hank is being cleared when he can't even take a faceoff.
Perhaps Santorelli should be taking them instead of Dank, being a center and all.
Guess him playing hurt is better than any replacement...but what about the big picture?

I'd like to hope its not that, but it definitely looks that way. Something that means nothing.
I'd prefer a healthy Hank in the spring and let go of the streak. Even if he has a broken finger he'll probably play in the Olympics anyways.

Probably worth pointing out that Fox is in a rare situation being a prospect with actual talent who didn't have any option other than playing his overage season in the OHL due to Brian-will-shut-the-board-down-if-we-talk-about-it types of reasons..

Otherwise he'd have been drafted and would be in the AHL this year.

Back in 2011, Fox was sent home by the London Knights to deal with some personal issues
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Ya, he made some questionable decisions as a teenager that landed him in some hot water. He has dealt with his behaviour and the consequences and moved on. He seems more and more determined to show a lot of people they made a mistake in not drafting him.

It's pretty awesome that the Canucks got Fox for absolutely nothing.

It's amazing how fast the Canucks' cupboard went from completely bare to having a number of intriguing prospects.

Interesting read for those that don't know.

If Fox turns out to be the next Dave Bolland for us, do we give gitch80 credit or do we give ol bug eyes the credit?

*LOL* He'll probably say that if he becomes a regular with the Canucks in a few years and scores his first multi-million dollar contract. :lol:

According to hockeyfights.com, Bollard has had two career fights, one in the NHL (2011/12) and the other one in the OHL (2004/05). Fox has had 18 fights since 2009/10. He is definitely "grittier" than Bolland ever will. :mrgreen:




One thing for sure, Fox has a pretty good shot, especially one-timer.
