Woke up and was depressed about the lockout, but at least I got to remember that this happened. Let's take a return trip down memory lane...

Pumped that Burr will finish his career where he belongs and that both sides got a fair deal.

For what it's worth, I'd much rather have Burrows at $4.5 than Lucic at $6.

$6M is a little steep, but the market is definitely inflated and young players are getting paid big time early.

they are just getting paid what they are worth as opposed to 10-15 years ago when RFAs got 50% of their worth and UFAs got 2x worth. I have no problem with doing it this way, players in their prime should get paid prime dollars.

Watching that goal against Chicago still brings chills and a little tear of joy to my eye. I've watched it probably close to 100 times but it doesn't get old. One of the biggest goals in Canuck history imo.

Were any of you drunk outside the Cambie yesterday night wearing a Burrows jersey ? I got in an argument with you about how he was overpaid, figured you were an HF'er. Show yourself, large asian man.

On that note, I don't actually think he's overpaid.

Last season I bought a Rome jersey, I though he'd be a starter on our team for the next 5 seasons... should have bought a Burrows jersey

Just found out about the signing. Finally, some GOOD news! It's been a rough week.

Burrows, my fave Canuck -- so tickled about having him for 4 more years.

If you are surprised than Burr got $4M+ then you really, really need to re-evaluate what you think you know. The same likely goes for every other Canucks deal. Take what you think is right and add 500-800K and you'll probably be ok.
