“I’m not looking for first-line money, top-six money,” Burrows said. “I still consider myself a checker. That’s what I think I am first. If I can generate some offence once in a while, I think that’s a plus for the team. But I still consider myself a checker. I think that’s what I’m worth.”
“That’s a Frenchman; they don’t know what they’re saying,” Burrows, who is from Montreal, cracked in his accented English. “It’s kind of funny, they were throwing every name in the tub. Who knows what are their sources. It can’t really bother me.”
You just have to love Burr’s attitude. Especially his crack at Pierre Lebrun being a Frenchman. I think Gillis knows he would have an angry mob outside his house if he traded Burr. And Gillis is wicked smart. I’m not worried really.
