BURROWS SLAMS REFEREE AUGER

Sounds about right, he was on crack the last time he reffed a Caps game, too.

"It was personal. It started in warmup, before the anthem," Burrows said of Auger's penalty calling. "(Augers) came over to me and he said I made him look bad in Nashville on the (Jerred) Smithson hit and he said he was going to get me back tonight." "When Smithson hit me from sideways and he (Auger) said, "I saw the replay, you had your head up, you weren't really hurt and you made me look bad so I'm going to get you back tonight," and he did, and he cost us two points." "He did his job in the third, I think. He got me on a diving call I didn't think was diving. He got me on an interference call that I had no idea how he could call that. It changed the game. It sucks right now for teammates who are battling 60 minutes to win a hockey game because every two points are so huge, are so important. And because of a guy's ego, it just blows everything out of proportion and the refs - they're making bad calls and the fans are paying for it and we're paying for it." "He comes into the game and he knows he's going to make a call against me to give Nashville an advantage and I don't think that's fair for my teammates and for the fans," said Burrows. "After my second penalty, I skated by him and he said, 'If you say a word, I'm going to kick you out,' so I didn't say a word because I still thought we could come back and win the game. But with three seconds left and a faceoff outside the zone, I thought I could tell him what I thought about him." "I think he should stay out for the rest of the year making calls like that that are making us look bad. Every two points are so important in this league. We just blew two points because of his officiating tonight."

I'm a little perplexed myself, however, the Canucks did not deserve to win this one.

Burrows not seeking "top 6 forward" money

12

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.

Not bad. Burrows is mic'd up for the Habs game and his line is in on 3 of the 4 Canucks goals.
