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 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.
