"The morning skate is nice but it’d probably be nice to have a real practice with the boys before getting out there," Burr told reporters today. He also said that after a few days of skating his foot feels fine. He broke his foot blocking a shot in the Canucks' 4-1 loss to the damned Sharks in the Canucks' season opener on October 3.
This will ease the loss of Jannik Hansen, who seemingly is going to miss a lot of time.
From the mouth of Burrows:
I figured John Tortorella had a no-diving policy with the Canucks because I had not seen any of the players doing it. Tortorella told the media today:
"I know the reputation from the outside looking in. When I wasn’t coaching here everybody thought Vancouver dove and did some whining. Our team is not going to dive. They’ve been talked to. I don’t think there’s much whining going on either.
This is my chance to to say we’re going to be an honest team. We’re trying to be an honest team. And I hope we get some god damn calls along the way."
I love this guy. Total reset.
