Alex Burrows Appreciation Thread
 
It's about time this guy received his own appreciation thread, he certainly deserves it... just an absolute beast at both ends of the ice and has really emerged as an offensive force this season. Go Alex :yo:

I want to marry Alex Burrows

Balls Mahoney 10-16-2008 09:11 PM

****ing A! Consider me in the Alex Burrows fan club.

imkinger 10-16-2008 09:12 PM

Monsterrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Jay Cee 10-16-2008 09:13 PM

Anyone who nearly gives Pierre McGuire an orgasm is A-1 with me!

Eggman 10-16-2008 09:14 PM

Oh yes, what a monster. It always sounds like McGuire is fantasizing about the player who is a monster...

But seriously, good job, Burrows! I am seriously considering asking for a Burrows jersey for my birthday.

EDIT: Lol @ Pyatt4God, you took it one step further than I did.

Right now he can do no wrong. Not only is he leading the team, he's near the top of the league also.

JonnyCash 10-16-2008 09:15 PM

I see a lot more in the future for him.. I have for a while, he is awesome.


EDIT: even if he scores 5 goals a year, he is still an amazing player without the puck.

UBCsalmonslayer 10-16-2008 09:16 PM

Everyone laughed at him when I took him in the 18th round in my hockey pool... who's laughing now? :naughty:

KDizzle 10-16-2008 09:18 PM

Honestly Alex is a testament to where hard work can get you. During the offseason, during the season, as he sleeps, whenever, he doesn't quit! I think my next jersey (when I get $$$$$) is going to be a Burrows 3rd. :yo:

(then I'll buy a Hansen... just like I said before :))

Amazing game by Burrows and that whole line. Seems like ever since his best friend on the team died he's been playing amazing. I really hope he keeps it up throughout the whole year, which unfortunately I highly doubt, but if he scores next game, Im dropping someone on my pool for him.

If there's a better third line out there right now, I'd love to see it.

I've been a huge Burrows fan since the trainwreck 05/06 season when there were nights it seemed like he was the only Canuck who was able to establish any type of forecheck whatsoever. I hope he's in Vancouver for a long time.

He seems like a Mike Gillis type player, so I'm hoping they can work out a deal.

Szechwan 10-16-2008 09:27 PM

I am just here to endorse this thread.

Finkle is Einhorn 10-16-2008 09:29 PM

The thing I love about Burrows is that he caught some attention with his hard work on his first NHL goal against Ryan Miller and the Sabres, and he hasn't really taken a game off since. In a city that has seen its fair share of flavours of the month, it's nice that one can stick around and keep up his level of play.

unknown 10-16-2008 09:29 PM

ive been a burrows supporter since his first season, ive always liked his determination, but i do admit i didnt think he was capable of producing like this. im glad he is and hope he keeps it up.

Same here. I've been considering getting a Burrows jersey since I watched him score his first hattrick live. Everything about him screams fan favourite.

I wasn't a Burrows fan in 05-06, but I am now. :)

The funny accent, the goofy name, his effort level, ability to produce when it's needed, surprisingly good hands, worked through the minors, a pest, does all the little things, his ball hockey history, etc.

el_capitan 10-16-2008 09:38 PM

I'm getting my jersey personalized, should I get Burrows?

Bishop* 10-16-2008 09:42 PM

I echo the sentiments of this thread... If someone could buy a Burrows jersey and send it to Katoomba, NSW, Australia for me - I'd really appreciate it (oh, and I would reimburse that person in the future!)

Go NUCKS Go!!
