So I've been from the interwebs, but I have a few things to catch up on and one really great cause to talk about (next post).

Rome is back for 2 more

The Canucks re-signed Aaron Rome to a two year deal. I did loathe to see Rome out on the ice at the beginning of the season, but I have to admit that he did get better. He got more comfortable on the blueline as the season went on, and by the end of it I thought he was a good depth defenceman. Also compared to Alberts, shit he look great. By the end of the year, the 26 year old played 49 games for the Canucks but missed games in the playoffs when he had a high ankle sprain.

So good for depth, but we're still needing a good defenceman badly

Burrows has Surgery

Burrows had surgery a couple days ago to repair two tears in the labrum of his left shoulder. Rehab for this type of surgery as per The Province is supposed to take approximately four to six months but Burr hopes to be back in time for training camp. The tears didn't come from any hit in particular but just over time.
