Cole is about as inconsistent as they come. He may have scored 30 goals this year, but by the trade deadline next year I guaran-damn-tee that Habs fans will be calling for his head.
Argument can be made for Pacioretty but I still take Burrows' elite two way play
And speaking of ignorant thanks for showing you know nothing about Cole. He was probably our most consistent forward all year and he was a threat to score every game as well as playing physical every game. He also scored 35 goals playing with two players in their first full seasons. Burrows scored 28 playing with two art ross winners.
Burrows+(big +. Probably some of the futures we get in a Luongo Deal and more) for Max Pac?
Not that I would do this, its poor asset management, but value wise its probably right.
Lets trade our 23 year old 33 goal scoring power forward for a 31 year old who scores less playing with better players. I don't care that Burrows plays pk, we have Plek, Gio, Moen, Prust, Noke, Eller, Bourque and Armstrong to do that.
I would trade kesler before I would trade burrows.
NO joke, Not saying the value is close, but just in what burrows brings.
He is elite as a PKer
He brings a gritty, annoyances play to his game that gets under the skin of players
He scores goals like a mother
He has by far the best cap hit in the NHL at 2m
And he is by far our most CLUTCH player, and is a playoff beast. Nobody scores bigger goals then burrows for vancouver.
