it's very different than the Moore situation.

Burrows is the type of player that you want on your team heading into a playoff year... that isn't a consideration for Toronto with Moore. With the canucks, trading a guy like Burrows heading into the playoffs, whether he's signed or not, is not the message you want to send to the rest of the team. It would have been a HUGE mistake to trade him at the deadline, even if there wasn't an extension in place.

I heard the announcement last night prior to game and was absolutely thrilled! Great signing...reasonable contract IMO. He has a love for the game and organization that is worth it's weight in gold which is something you just can't pay enough for.

This is my worst fear with the contract. We'll have to wait and see. I don't know if it would have been realistic to let him go.

Also, that goal against Carolina turned tide...seems like so long ago now.

I think this deal makes sense right now and Gillis can't be running away from ghosts when managing a hockey team.

I agree. That should be our next priority. This line looks great and if we can keep them together for a few years and actually get some long term chemistry going, then nothing but good things are going to happen.

Here's a bit more on the supposed trade that might have happened:

Quote:
As for Burrows, our buddy Pierre LeBrun at espn.com, who speculated about a trade on HNIC last Saturday, was onto something. By no means were the Canucks shopping Burrows, but they got an unsolicited offer that raised eyebrows. Instead, they chose to re-sign him to a four-year, $8-million U.S. extension.

Now I want to know what the offer was.

Most likely Ovechkin straight up.

But yea, I'm incredibly curious to see what type of value Burrows would've had in a trade.

2nd rounder plus mid grade prospect perhaps. Burrows is one of those guys that wins you games in May and June.

The line of Daniel-Henrik-Burrows has combined for 27pts in the past 8 games. All players are minimum ppg, Henrik with 11 in 8.

Dont know why some people still put the RPM line ahead of the Sedin line.

I don't know, I think it'd take more than that if the offer in fact 'raised eyebrows'. Burrows is comparable to Dominic Moore who went for a second and it wasn't really an exorbitant price.

Hopefully he's not just a temp in the top 6 and he can embrace that role and consistently produce at the level he is now. He'd be a steal at that contract if he can even just continue his current level of play.

Could be a great deal for the canucks... could be Cooke part 2... 4 yrs is a big gamble for a veteran player who's never played in a top 6 role before a dozen games ago!
Even if he returns to his comfortable third line checker role, he's still priced well. And he even considers himself a checker at heart. Any bonus top-6-esque production he can provide is a cherry on top.
