  1. if burrows is such a pussy, how come he injured phaneuf with a hit to the boards the other game. burrows is the canucks most valuable forward of the season. he's a pest, he scores goals, he plays with heart and hes physical. he has come up with the biggest goals of the season for the canucks. who cares if he lost his fight to some blackwhore.
