Damn, tuff break for Burr. Courtesy of Tanev? I thought the kid couldn't shoot. *LOL* I just hope Burr doesn't become Booth 2.0 (can't score anymore and injury plagued). Oh well, hopefully Kassassian will draw back into the lineup, time to give him Burr's spot with the Sedins for an extended stretch and see what he can do. Sink or swim baby! :lol:

I wouldn't worry about Burrows becoming Booth 2.0 on the injury front. Booth's injuries have been from being hit. Bur's have been from being hit with the puck (blocked shot and "blocked" clearing attempt).

That must just be a kick to the pills for Burrows. No doubt he could smell the goal coming after the opportunities he's had lately. Maybe this injury will take a bit of the pressure off him now that he's been put on the shelf. Hopefully he can work on shooting drills and such before too long. Whatever it takes to get his confidence back up so he can get the monkey off his back when he hits the ice again.

It will be interesting to see who slots in with the Twins now. I wager we'll see Hansen at first, but wouldn't be surprised if we see Kes back in again. If we see Booth or Santorelli with the Twins, then we know Torts is getting desperate. Wonder if we'll see any roster moves next week once management has a better idea of how long Burrows will be on the shelf.

Shitty break for Burrows.

Can't say I'm thrilled with the idea of putting Kesler back with the Sedins. They didn't produce that much in the way of goals together anyway, and we need Kesler centering a line to give us three competent forward units. Hopefully Booth continues to improve and Kassian wakes up.

http://canucksarmy.com/2013/12/3/report-gino-odjick-hospitalized

Gino Odjick is going through some difficult times. Last week, he attended his father's funeral. This weekend, he was admitted to hospital for problems related to concussions he sustained during his hockey playing career.

Odjick was brought in a very agitated state to the psychiatric ward at the Pierre-Janet hospital Centre…

Odjick didn't seem in too bad a state when I went to see him at the hospital yesterday evening.

"I'm here for my concussions," he said.

"Since I retired in 2002, I've spent 32 months at the hospital."

It seems that Odjick is in denial about his problems, and gave the reporter false information that he'd been allowed to check out of the hospital, but Dr. Vincent Lacroix denied Odjick's claim


:shock:

I saw Odjick standing outside the Penthouse last summer. I think Gino struggles with a few things.

Burr - soup is good food

Gino - soup not good brains

Tough break for Burr and us. This may be the perfect chance to throw Kassian with the twins to see if that sparks him. He'll the way Weise has been playing maybe he should be given a shot. I mean he demolished the Danish league so you know it's in there :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Kassian should NOT play with the twins tonight. Period.

He needs to earn it with hard work.

Honestly, as silly as this may sound, I would actually reward David Booth with that spot tonight based on the way he's played the past few games.

Weiss got a post PK shift with the twins the other day. So noticeable everyone remembered. I suspect Kesler is back on their wing though I'd prefer Hansen.

That's cool, but I just don't see your logic in thinking that the Jets would accept a bunch of scrubs for Evander Kane.

You have to give if you want to receive.

What you perceive as giving up too much, I perceive as reality.

Ummm......when did I say they would accept a bunch of scrubs for Kane?

Any thoughts I've had regarding a trade for Evander Kane have always included Edler going to Winterpeg.

Sorry my bad,

For some reason, I had you mixed with some of the 'Urine Crew' that were suggesting that we'd be able to get Kane for Welsh, Weise, Booth, and other popcorn farts of that nature.

As far as moving Edler or one of our Top 4 goes, I respectfully disagree with that.

Without superstars on defense, having depth on defense is absolutely VITAL. Things look pretty rosy back there now, but it's because we haven't had any key injuries on D.

Based on what happened in 2011, we of all teams should know what an injury-ridden defense will do to a team. We ended up missing the post-season in 2007/2008 largely due to this reason as well. A large reason why Chicago owned us in our first few playoff series' against them in recent years, was also related to this (especially 09/10).

Moving a Top 4 defenseman for a Top 6 Forward (non franchise player) will do nothing for this team other than re-arranging our strengths (i.e. trading downgraded defense for upgraded offense). We will be different, but we won't be better.
