And size should be an issue when a player plays the type of game Burrows does. Why is it so hard for us Vancouver fans to be honest about our own players. It's like we all get so bent out of shape when talking about a players weaknesses. Burrows is a small forward and plays a ruff style of game. Sooner or later he is going to break down. Do you want him making $5M playing in the 3rd 4th lines because he signed a stupid deal?
He's not small.

He's 6'1".

He's not frail either.

He's not Anze Kopitar, but he's not Ryan Shannon either.

I don't understand how he can be considered small. Just don't understand at all.

6 years 22.5 would be great contract for the team and the playerIMO.
