Burrows to do colour commentary during pre-season

Quote:
So with that fresh in his mind, don't expect the injured winger to be looking to make a name for himself when he makes his broadcast debut this pre-season. Burrows's first gig comes Tuesday on Team 1040 when the Canucks host the Calgary Flames. He'll also be doing colour for Sportsnet on Wednesday when Vancouver plays the Oilers as well as Sept. 28 when the San Jose Sharks visit Rogers Arena. Burrows could miss up to the first two months of the season recovering from shoulder surgery.

I don't think I'll rip anyone, but I'll call it like I see it, let's put it that way, said Burrows, with a playful wink. I'll be nice. I'm not going to throw anyone under the bus. It's going to be fun, but you never know what could happen.

This seriously has the potential for greatness. Burrows is a funny ****er. Burrows impersonating Crawford to his face on HNIC remains one of my favorite things of all time.

Too bad we don't play the Stars, he could do commentary in the Crow voice whenever the camera went to Crawford.

I think Burrows doing commentary will be both hilarious and tragic in the same breath.

Either way, should be entertaining.

I can't wait to hear that. He's gonna be such a big homer, but it will be entertaining.

If you close your eyes and listen to Burrows and George St. Pierre talk it's hard to tell the difference <_<

This will be awsome. I'm a fan of anything that will entertain us during these preseason games. It's nice to see some prospects but for the most part it's just guys going through the motions.


I went to the Canucks site and only the Saturday HNIC game was on the schedule. Is there a schedule for the games on Sportsnet? or could somebody be kind enough to post the tv schedule for the preseason? I looked in the training camp thread and saw nothing, maybe I missed it.

And add to the thick accent his adams apple which makes his voice crack like a 14 year old boy going through puberty.

The expected update on Burrows' shoulder injury results in... no update according to an Iain MacIntyre tweet:

No update this week on Burrows, who was to have major test on shoulder. GM Gillis tells me time frame unchanged: 5-6 mos from June surgery.
