That is a dangerous contract to give a then 33yr old forward who bashes and crashes every night. At some point over the next few years Burrows is going to start breaking down.
Considering only one player on this team has a contract longer than 5 years (and he's being dealt), not sure why you keep bringing this up. Longer term deals tend to
the cap hit in any event (unless you happen to think some GM is going to pay Burrows $6+ million on a shorter term deal.
