Alex Burrows has obviously had a heck of a month so far, and it's only 2/3rds over. In 8 games he has 12 goals (13 points total) and is plus 8. He also has 2 hat tricks, a game winning goal, and an 8 game point streak (9 if you go count into December). And, he has been held goalless in only one game so far this month. If he keeps this up, he'll score nearly 20 goals this month, and he's got to be in contention for the first star for the month of January. However, since the three stars are subjective, will he be hindered by the controversy surrounding him?
