Alex Burrows spent twelve season with the Vancouver Canucks, gave his heart and soul to the team, the fans and the city…and got dealt to Ottawa for a surprisingly nice return!
Full bench on the podcast this week. Ryan, Dave, P Mac and Geeta discuss the big Burrows trade which sent him to Ottawa, with an extension, in exchange for Jonathan Dahlen Monday afternoon, what this means for the Canucks’ rebuild and if there are more deals to done by Jim Benning, a man who has appeared to have won over some of his critics.
Dave takes the side of Senators fans. Why are they giving up a hot young prospect for a grizzled vet with only 9 goals this year? And will they actually be able to make a run in the playoffs with the team they have assembled? Canucks fans are applauding the deal, while Senators fans are calling BS in the nation’s capital.
They also discuss the big mumps outbreak in Vancouver, how it could have originated and how it’s spreading to other NHL teams, mainly the Minnesota Wild. Is it all Luca Sbisa’s fault? Or does the blame lay in Medicine Hat?
Finally, the gang discusses the other big trades in the NHL this week, Brian Boyle being shipped to Toronto and Marin Hanzal to Minnesota. What does this mean for Hansen’s trade value? The gang also discusses the ongoing arena problems and Ryan and Dave’s upcoming travels!
