UPDATE: No Christmas cards for LeBrun. ********** In a show of humility: "I'm not asking for first-line money or top six money," Burrows said. "I don't think it changes anything. I still consider myself a checker. That's what I think I am first. That's how I want to be paid. "If I can generate offence once in a while, I think it's a plus for the team." Burrow's reaction to Pierre LeBrun's suggestion that he may be traded by the deadline if a deal is not made: "I heard that hot stove," Burrows said. "That's a Frenchman, they don't know what they're saying. It's kind of funny, they were throwing out every name. Who knows who are their sources. I can't let it bother me. I have to play my game and hope for the best — that I stay here." The article mentions that Burrows is seeking a 3-year deal worth $2 million per season. I'd say that's a great deal.
