Canucks re-signed Burrows (4 Years, 18 millions)
 
@TSNBobMcKenzie
Alex Burrows' four-year extension with VAN has an AAV of $4.5M.

Skead 09-14-2012 02:09 PM

Awwww yeahhhhhhhhhhh.

Kershaw 09-14-2012 02:09 PM

that translate to "Contract of 4 years for Alex Burrows with the Canucks"

NHLNucksFan 09-14-2012 02:09 PM

Murph says $18m to $4.5 per. Awesome!

4 Years, 18 million (4.5M AAV), NTC.

Good for him. Huge raise. I think he has peaked production wise though, but he is a heart and soul guy of that team.

thepuckmonster 09-14-2012 02:10 PM

Burrrrrrrrrr.

couture23 09-14-2012 02:10 PM

Nice money for Burrows, however I don't really follow the Canucks..

Still enough room for Doan?

Fraser Read 09-14-2012 02:10 PM

Great Contract. Well earned

Taelin 09-14-2012 02:10 PM

sportsnetmurph: #canucks Burrows deal includes a no-trade clause.

bikesbikesbikes 09-14-2012 02:11 PM

Best news I've heard in weeks! Other teams may hate him, but he's my favourite player bar none.

Burrows is on his old contract this season, so our cap didn't change yet. But if anyone can make room, it's Gillis and Gilman.

$4.5M for a 30 goal scorer who's the heart and soul of the team...really good deal. This is exactly the contract that I figured would be fair and was hoping for so I'm really glad it happened.

Wow, great deal for the Canucks. All their top guys are severely underpaid.

Yeah, Burrows still has 1 more year @ 2 million. The Canucks have around 2.5 mill in cap space, so if Doan is signed then Luongo/Ballard/Booth are on their way out.

Except Luongo who just has a long term to even it out. :nod:

Thought so, good news for Canucks then.

Also Kesler on LTIR for now... not sure how that plays with the lockout though...

Great deal.

start winnin 09-14-2012 02:17 PM

Awesome deal for the Canucks fans. :)

I don't like Burrows antics, but he's a good player.

StringerBell 09-14-2012 02:18 PM

Great deal for us. I thought we might have to give him another year or two to get that cap hit.

chugz 09-14-2012 02:18 PM

nice raise. he was getting wayyyy underpaid on his 2M contract.

Elever 09-14-2012 02:18 PM

Same as Marchand's, interesting.

The Gourmet 09-14-2012 02:18 PM
