Anyway, that's just the way I see it, of course everyone is entitled to their own opinion on it and if you feel the way you do that's fine.

My underlying point was that Burrows is an excellent hockey player and I'm glad he's been given the opportunity to represent his country. To a guy making his way up from the ECHL it's something that I'm sure he would have never dreamed of 5 years ago. I think given the fact that he's never had this chance before (aside from in ball hockey, where is has won international championships) he'll be sure not to ruin it by doing anything that would reflect poorly on Canada.
I certainly hope you are right. That is my primary fear. I'd hate it if he lost it and ended some poor European kid's career in a fit of rage/stupidity. Because he definitely can be an effective player, when he isn't being a huge ******. If he can walk the line and get other teams off their game while providing good PK, he can be useful for us(although I can still think of a bunch of guys I'd prefer to have in that role). Hopefully Sutter won't be afraid to bench him if he even gets a whiff that Burrows is starting to go nuts.

Touche. Let's hope Burrows doesn't run into any low blood sugar moments this tournament.

If I do highlights for this, I'm going to put in random Burrows stuff just to spite you Burrows haters.
I have no memory of these events. Do you have links?
