Time for some positive vibes towards our biggest heart-and-soul player!
As you all know, the Great Strangelove has always sprung to the defense of one Alexandre Burrows.
For good reason.
And yours truly is more interested in what AB can bring to this team in the FUTURE than the past.
But sadly, it seems some of CC's best posters have forgotten even what Mr Burrows has done in the past.
A re-post from tonight's GDT if I may...

WOW never thought I'd see that said about AB.
But I guess now that folks can't claim he's a washed-up-stick-a-fork-in-him player anymore...
2nd in all-time Canuck short-handed goals (Bure is first).
Tied for 9th in all-time Canuck game-winning goals (and I bet he's 3rd in ES game-winning goals).
1st in goals-per-playoff-game among present-day Canucks.
The only present-day Canuck to score a short-handed playoff goal.
Tied for 1st (with Gus Adams) in ALL-TIME OVERTIME PLAYOFF GOALS.
Can you say CLUTCH??

PLUS he's in there like a dirty shirt when things get ugly.
All this from our best defensive forward.
No offense Blob, but some of you guys have gone nutty....
Now I'm not sure if many here turned into mindless pitchforkers
... or if the hatred spewed by the media has achieved it's desired effect.
Or if it's both.
But IMESHO whether one is a rebuilder, retooler, or re-upper...
YOU DON'T DITCH ALEXANDRE BURROWS
(well not unless you get a HUGE return for him)
