Burrows: Still humble

I like Ben Kuzma’s (Vancouver Province) piece this morning on Alex Burrows’ nomination for the Bill Masterson trophy. Like a hot potato, Alex Burrows was quickly passing credit to others Thursday.

Steve Yzerman talks about Alex Burrows, 2010 candidate

On the TEAM 1040 this morning, Steve Yzerman was asked about talk that he may be considering Alex Burrows for Team Canada’s 2010 entry. Yzerman’s response: “We’ve got a relatively long list of players that, once the season is over, we’ll sit down and discuss which guys out of that group we’ll bring to Vancouver (for the 2010 Games). And Alex’s play this season has certainly merited – he’s earned the right for us to watch him very closely. He’s obviously someone I’ve taken note of with his play. The offensive production has increased this year to add to his...

Canucks/Blackhawks brouhaha 15

Canucks/Blackhawks brouhaha

Photo credit: canucks.com Shortly after the Canucks scored and made it 3-0 in the 3rd period against the Chicago Blackhawks tonight, the Blackhawks decided to show how tough and resilient they are. First, Dustin Byfuglien punched Roberto Luongo in the face. A few seconds later, Dave Bolland punched Daniel Sedin while the puck was a good 30 feet away from him. Yeah, real tough. Alain Vigneault was pissed off at Chicago coach Joel Queneville and rightfully so. Sending their tough guys going after the Canucks’ best players was a chicken shit move and it’s the kind of “fighting” the league...
