Burrows: Fehr will get us a fair deal

ESPNBoston.com's James Murphy was at the Maxime Talbot -organized charity game Thursday night in Chateauguay, Quebec, and gathered these quotes from Vancouver Canucks Alex Burrows:

On owners green lighting multiyear, mega-million contracts while complaining about them in negotiations:

“Sometimes it doesn’t really make any sense, but for us and me personally, in Vancouver I had a chance to stay there,” Burrows said. “I like the city. I like the fans. I have a lot of good friends in the city and the organization is first-class because they want to win. For them committing to an extension, I was pretty happy to get it done. But we want to get back on the ice and play some hockey soon.”

On chance he might have to give some of that money back if there are wage rollbacks as part of a new CBA:

“It’s not really fair because you agree to a contract and you hope that they’re going to go through with it and they’re not going to try and roll you back or escrow 25 percent of it,” Burrows said. “But I know Don [Fehr] has great character; guys are united and guys are behind Don and we know we’re going to get a fair deal.”
