When did I say that? I said we shouldn't judge past events based on today's standards because someone above was doing just that. When that hit was thrown it was still dirty, but in 2009 the crackdown on headshots hadn't come about yet. I never said I wasn't still soured towards Burrows for that (among other things). You're the second person to try to put words into my post that aren't really there. I'm just tired of the guy. How I'm suddenly such a bad person for that is beyond me...
And Arnott may be bigger than other players, but he sure as hell never played like it. Arnott is pretty soft, hence my tongue-in-cheek remarks.
Because in doing so you wish the guy loses his ability to make a NHL pay cheque!
So how long before Edmonton/Colorado/Minnesota pass the Canucks up and never look past? I say 2 years.
love these comments
don't know why it's so attractive to be a consistent non-playoff team. I wouldn't trade this team for one with youth and potential because we have a shot at the cup for the next while, can't say the same for any of the teams listed above.
Interestingly, Marchand and Burrows had the same number of goals this year, but Marchand had 3 more assists. And that's while facing much tougher minutes with good, but clearly inferior linemates (Bergeron and Seguin). I wonder if a poll's ever been done on these two?
Harder minutes for Marchand? Burrows gets no powerplay time and plays both the PK against the opposition's best forwards and ES against the opposition's best defense.
