Daniel was supposed to be the best goal-scorer when that line was put togetherRumsfeld wrote: Burrows is not an elite winger, and I think you know that Doc. He plays with the two best passers in the Conference and is a terrific defensive player who scores big goals.... but he really isn't that offensively talented and he isn't tough and the refs fucking hate him.
... yet Burrows has consistently outscored Daniel at even strength.
As a matter of fact Burrows is 4th among elite scoring wingers in that category over the past 3 seasons:

(Stamkos is a centre).
BTW do you see anyone else in that top 30 besides Burrows and Dupuis (23rd) who play on the #1PK unit?
Didn't think so!
And Alex is VERY tough..... ummm pound-for-pound.
The refs hate him because he's an asshole.
Burrows never complains no matter how much an idiot coach makes him switch lines/play centre/etc.
You just don't trade a guy like Burrows, you just don't...
