PERCEPTION VS. REALITY THE ALEX BURROWS STORY
Thanks for sharing my piece, Bombsy. Alex is a genuinely great person with an unrivaled passion for the game of hockey.

I have zero doubts whether or not he will re-sign... as many of you have said money isn't his motivator. His story is an amazing one, and it is too bad he doesn't get more respect and more coverage - rising up through the ranks by simply outworking everyone else (and showing a lot of hockey smarts along the way) is remarkable.
