Horrible trade for Vancouver.
In Montreal Burrows would be lucky to get 25 goals in a season, more likely 20.

In Vancouver AK could get 40 goals a season easy playing with the Sedins.

I wouldn't trade AK for Burrows straight up, I think AK brings a lot more to the table even if he is inconsistent.

AK can play against those big tough wingers, last game against Boston Lucic ran into AK and fell over and the same thing happened to Hartnell. Why do you think the whole Richards/ Subban incident happened? It was because AK was making the Flyers look like wimps and Richards started slashing AK. AK crosschecked Richards once and Richards was in a bag of hurt and overreacted.
