Awww that's swell. MG is doing a righteous job with the club leading up to tomorrow.

Great player, great term, great money.

Props for this, man! Every penny of that contract, Burrows deserves. I seriously can't believe we managed to get him at that price and term. Definitely getting a jersey in the next week!

I think many here were predicting a four year deal.

I hate Burrows with a passion, but he's a good hockey player and this is a good signing.

how has this not been reported? Even on sportsnet pre game they're still talking about Burrows possibly being trade bait?

I wasn't "predicting" (although a three or four year deal was probably obvious).

Awesome job Gillis! I'm so thrilled to have Burr with the Canucks for another 4 years. $2 million is also a great contract!

The next young core of the Vancouver Canucks continues to take shape.

Its great to have a player agent as a GM sometimes. This is HUGE steal.

2mil is pretty much what most people expected, too bad he couldn't get it lower, still a good deal though for both sides.
