Found September 15, 2012 on Goon's World:

One of the most unlikable teams in the NHL re-signed one of their most unlikable characters when the Vancouver Canucks resigned Alex Burrows to a four year extension worth 18 million dollars for the mathematically challenged people like me – that’s works out being a four year extension that pays Burrows 4.5 million a year.

For fellow Canucks haters like Me – Alex Burrows is the poster boy of what is wrong with NHL current crop of agitators – they run their mouths and flop all over the ice and drive the opposition players nuts and usually run and hide behind the officials when the opposition come to collect on the bill.

For the Canucks signing Burrows was the right thing because he fits in well with fellow Canucks fraud Max Lapierre as they two frauds were on full display with their bag of tricks during the 2011 Stanley Cup playoffs. These two clowns will be happy to know that the Boston Bruins have resigned their top pugilist Milan Lucic to a three year deal worth 18 million dollars a year.
Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks President & General Manager Mike Gillis announced today that the Canucks have re-signed left wing Alex Burrows.

Burrows, 31, collected 52 points (28-24-52) and 90 penalty minutes in 80 games played in 2011.12. He also set a career high for most game-winning goals in a season with seven, ranking 11th in the League in this category. Following the conclusion of the season, Burrows represented Team Canada at the World Championships.

Burrows has played in seven seasons over his NHL career, all with the Canucks. He has recorded 270 points (139-131-270) in 522 games. The 6’1”, 195-pound left winger ranks second in franchise history for most shorthanded goals (16) and 10th for most game-winning goals (22). Burrows has been the recipient of multiple club awards, including the Vancouver Canucks Most Exciting Player (2008, 2009, 2010) and the Fred J. Hume Award as the Canucks Unsung Hero (2008).

The Pincourt, Quebec native has also appeared in 58 career playoff games, recording 28 points (16-12-28) and 90 penalty minutes in four post-season appearances. Burrows holds the club record for most career overtime playoff goals (3) and is tied for most series-winning goals (2). Burrows originally signed as a free agent with Vancouver on November 8, 2005.


The fact that Alex Burrows is resigned by the Canucks will give me reason and I will have no problem continuing to hate the #canucks
