[Speculation] Burrows as a Possible Coaching Addition


Recommended Posts

Bring in the best person for the job, period.

 

I have a hard time believing that would be burrows. It would start feeling a little too country club with the Sedins, Higgins, Malhotra and then Burrows added to the mix.

Burr knows how a good power play works tho.

Does he? Has he shown that as a coach?

 

If he wasn’t a former Canuck would he be the best person for the job?

Yea we aren't the old Oilers. I don't like bringing in old players just bring in the best available.

Is Burrows contract up or something? Why would he do this otherwise? It is a lateral move. 


I think it would be a promotion no?

 

He would be an associate coach here. Is he that in Montreal?

It looks like one guy's random thought started all this.   (Might be cool to get Burr though)

 

'During a segment on Sekeres and Price where fans send in questions and comments, one person made a bold take, saying that former Canuck Alex Burrows would join the team as an assistant coach, which was then discussed on the podcast.'

Burr is the anti country club though

How do you determine "best" vs. capable?


A long list of accomplishments as a player and a coach?

 

He doesn’t have nearly enough experience. Prefect coach for a young Habs team.

Not when you keep hiring former players. That’s the whole idea behind country club.

I guess it depends on the former players. I don't think you risk bringing in a heir of entitlement bringing in Burr.

From a team perspective it really isn't. Wouldn't make sense to release a coach under contract as assistant and associate really have the sane job responsibilities.
