My opinion and I know it's unpopular so have at it.
And on topic about Burr's worth, how many Canucks were invited to Team Canada
Mitchell did not sig ntill aug 25 ...there were questions up until mid aug that he wouldnt play the comiing year.
van couldnt wait (like it did at trade deadline)for him to get healthy`
they trade for Ballard and sign Hamhuis....... little cap room let alone two year contract for Mitchell.....if mitchell had been healthy he would have been resigned...timing sucked but thats what happened
