Quotable: Adam Burish on facing Chicago
By Mark Stepneski
Here are a couple of quotes from Dallas forward Adam Burish, who will be facing his former teammates when the the Stars play at Chicago on Wednesday at the United Center. Burish, a member of Chicago's Stanley Cup champion team last season, signed with the Stars as a free agent over the summer.
He had some funny things to say in talking with the Chicago media today. Thanks to Stars PR for the audio of Burish.
When asked if there was anyone he is looking forward to playing against
"Sharpie (Patrick Sharp). I can't wait to get against him. I was looking forward to playing against Kaner (Patrick Kane, who is out with a lower body injury). I told him he must have the Burish flu; I think he's a little scared. He said, 'I wanted to play against you' and I said, 'You're easy to play against, I'd shut you down.' ... I'm looking forward to playing all the guys. I told Ducan [Keith] I am going to chase him down in the corner and give him the business a little bit. I am sure I won't shut up the whole game."
When told Patrick Sharp said he would go after him instead of the other way around
"Sharp hasn't gone after anybody in his whole career. Who is he going to hurt? I am not afraid of Sharpie. He's not going to hurt anyone. He's nice looking, has the nice hair and nice smile. That's all he's got going. I'm not scared of him."
