News for you buddy: Your mancrush, Duncan Keith, is quietly one of the most dirtiest players in the league. This may be the first time he's been suspended, but its certainly not the first time he's done classless crap like that. The only reason he'll regret that elbow on Daniel Sedin is that is the one time he didn't get away with it.

Clearly you must be some sort of Penticton Keith homer to think otherwise.
Another homer Canucks fan?

The thing is, Ward has been a solid goaltender on one of the defensively worst teams in the league for years now. Dubnyk has only very recently shown that he can be a go-to guy. Coming from someone who lives near Edmonton, Ward is undoubtedly our number one goaltender.

Are you also disappointed with cheapshot artists like Perry & Keith being on the team? What about floppers and people that start fights in practices like Subban?

No kidding why is he invited? He is an embarrassment and their are so many better options. Seguin, Staal, Staal, Bergeron, Thornton, Couture, marleau Spezza, Lucic, Morrow just off the top of my head.

Came to chat about WHC and the addition of Burrows, guess I'll just save it and make conversation elsewhere. Can't believe all the hate on here

A lot of them choose not to make the trip, or are injured/want rest.

Seguin needed surgery, Bergeron is concussed, Lucic I don't know, Spezza has a new 1 month old kid, etc etc.

Way to deflect the issue. Person was responding to another poster talking about character.

Exactly. But hey, knock a guy who will willing to answer the bell to play for his country when other non-injured better players can't be bothered to do the same.

Can people please stop with Burrows crap? You do not have to like him (I don't like him either), but you can certainly support Team Canada and him during the 2 week period.

Seriously, get over it. Cheer for the logo on the front, and not the name on the back.

Looks like we have a great team, I'm excited! I hope all of you who are ragging on Burrows actually watch this tournament. He's an extremely valuable player who earned a poor reputation for 'extra-curricular activities' in the early part of his career. As has been mentioned, he isn't a saint, but neither is any pro hockey player (including the others playing on Team Canada).

You know that this happened not even a year ago, right? Have you ever seen any other pro hockey player bite another player?


I will cheer Canada, but I sure won't be cheering Burrows. He isn't the kind of guy I want representing our country.

I think the fact spezza apparently called team Canada and asked for a spot, but that spot was filled by burrows is an example of why there is disagreement on hs inclusion to ths team.

I will cheer Canada, but I sure won't be cheering Burrows. He isn't the kind of guy I want representing our country.
I guess in my book dirty is dirty whether it's a bad hit, biting someones fingers, or sticking your fingers in someones mouth. As someone who follows the Canucks and watches him play regularly, it's evident that the rate at which he crosses the line is dramatically lower than it was earlier in his career and it's my argument that at his current rate he is no more guilty of being dirty than any other NHL player. Anyway, that's just the way I see it, of course everyone is entitled to their own opinion on it and if you feel the way you do that's fine.

My underlying point was that Burrows is an excellent hockey player and I'm glad he's been given the opportunity to represent his country. To a guy making his way up from the ECHL it's something that I'm sure he would have never dreamed of 5 years ago. I think given the fact that he's never had this chance before (aside from in ball hockey, where is has won international championships) he'll be sure not to ruin it by doing anything that would reflect poorly on Canada.

omg...are you serious?! I had no idea that happened. Burrows isn't just on the team, but he got a spot over Spezza?? This is completely shameful

Ahhh, so Burrows antics aren't what bugs, its his lack of trophies. So everyone light on trophies should be kicked off of the team?

Or is it that winning trophies makes you forget about the antics? If so, that's pretty ridiculous.

Yes because Spezza is a perfect fit as a 4th line energy guy/checker.

Probably goes to the timing of events. Given that the Canucks were knocked out earlier, I'm guessing Lowe called Burrows first. What's Lowe going to do? Phone Burrows back, sorry, I made a mistake - you're off the team after getting the call from Spezza?
