I like him a lot, just think that's an overpayment, plus, I just read that he has a full no trade clause. Double ouch.
Does Gillis ever think that he might need to trade some of these guys sometime? Sticking himself with overpaid contracts and no trade clauses?? I don't get it.
Burrows is still in his prime though. So, I view Burrows as part of the solution not the problem. Plus it's not easy finding the 3rd 1st line player, and Burrows was able to solidify himself in that spot.
