Burrows denies report he’s willing to waive no-trade clause

With the Feb. 29 trade deadline nearing, and the franchise in a retool-on-the-fly mode, the fact Burrows is 34 and has a year left on his contract at a $4.5-million US salary-cap hit made the Saturday report by Hockey Night in Canada insider Elliotte Friedman thought-provoking.

He later said Burrows had denied the report and the winger was adamant Sunday that there was nothing to it.

“I learned about it after the (Saturday) game,” said Burrows. “Obviously, I think Elliotte had the same game as we had — not a very good night — because there’s no truth to that. I’ve never talked to management or coaches about it or to teammates.
