Taking Burrows now and the future isn't an option?

I'll take Backes for both.

haha, this poll is amazing. The best way to make your player look better is to remove the option where the other player is better. Good job.

Nobody's going to pick that option anyways.

I don't know why it didn't post because I had it as an option. I'll see if i can fix it..



Can't edit the poll for some reason. If you choose Burrows now and future, just post it. Sorry guys.

Backes is better now, and will be much better in the future.

Don't see why we needed to ask this obviously answered question yet again.

Backes. Not close.

Backes.

Gillis knew what he was doing when he tendered that offer-sheet.

He would have offered more if that was the case. Backes is easily worht a 1st and 3rd plus the salary that comes with it.

You're right Gillis should have offered so much more after Backes put up 31 points last season.

Backes.

I remember before the start off the season Doug MacLean on Sportsnet was analyzing Mike Gillis' transactions and was ridiculing him for the offer sheet towards Backes implying he isn't very good. I guess that's why he's out of a job.

Its called scouting. 31 points, on a bad team..in how many games? How old is the player? You scout skill levels, not numbers.

Burrows is my 2nd favorite player in the league. Backes easily.

Despite the Backes 4 goal game tonight, I'm going with the "Burrows now, Backes future" option. Burrows is the team MVP right now.

But yeah, Backes is and will be the better player, no doubt.


Oh, and this is a stupid lop-sided poll question that should probably be locked.

Maybe Burrows now, but absolutely Backes in the future.

More leader, more physical, more skill = better player and a future Blues captain.
