Damn, one of the Canucks beat writers did say that they noticed Burrows walking out of the dressing room with a very noticeable limp. Was hoping it wasn't too serious. Shucks.
Any thoughts on top line in the meantime? And will Kassian get a shot there when he's back?
Last game Booth was skating with the Sedins on a decent number of shifts. Could see Hansen getting looks up there as well.
Will he be placed on IR?
Yahoo 8 team H2H, standard scoring league:
C (4) - Claude Giroux, Tyler Seguin, Ryan Kessler, Mikko Koivu, Mark Scheifele
LW (4) – James Neal, Patrick Sharp, Ryan O’Reilly, Jonathan Drouin, Dustin Penner
RW (4) – Jakub Voracek, Jarome Iginla, David Backes, Radim Vrbata, Beau Bennett, Teemu Selanne
D (5) – Erik Karlsson, Duncan Keith, Brent Burns, Alex Pietrangelo, Tobias Enstrom, Ryan McDonagh
G (3) – Jonathan Quick, Roberto Luongo, Jonathan Bernier, Evgeni Nabokov
Well thankfully I had him benched in my weekly lineup league. Love it if they put him onto IR so it gives me some rooom to move.

How can a guy not be on the IR four days after it's announced that he'll be out for "a couple of weeks"? What are they waiting for?
According to Rotoworld:
"Alex Burrows (foot) is slated to participate in a full practice with the Canucks on Thursday."
Any further news on a timeline for his return?
There's no reclaiming the cap hit for the games he missed. Players on IR count fully against the cap. There is no relief. LTIR is a different beast but even then the player fully counts against the cap and they can't save any cap space for future use by retroactively putting the player on LTIR.
