Alex Burrows: $8 million richer

Shortly after signing his 4-year/$8 million contract extension, Alex Burrows scored his 17th and 18th goals of the season as the Vancouver Canucks won for the 11th time in 13 games.

It’s obviously too early to tell if Burrows is worth $2 million per season. Like I said yesterday, I don’t mind the deal if he continues to play the way he’s playing right now. If he continues to play well on the top-6 or the checking line – whichever is asked of him – and regularly produces 15+ goals and 40 points, it’s a solid deal. I hope, of course, that he does. Lord help him if he regresses.

Here are more links on the deal:
