I still have to pinch myself sometimes when I watch how good and how consistent a player Burrows has become. He is so effective regardless of his linemates, season after season.
I remember watching him on the fourth line in '06/07 and noticing that he had a decent release for a scrub, but I never imagined he would be the kind of first-line offensive threat that he is today. Pretty incredible story. And a pretty fantastic cap hit.
EDIT: Schneida on fiya.
Getting out-offensed by the Wild.
LOL at Volpatti's wrist shot.
Damn we've been unlucky this period. Should've potted a couple at least.
I know Volpatti is more physical and a better fighter, but with the increased amount of ice-time the fourth line is getting I'd rather see Oreskovich out there, at least until Pinozzotto or Bitz get back. Volpatti just sucks at hockey.
