The Canucks' Alex Burrows has never been a popular player outside of Vancouver for his questionable play and lack of sportsmanship (see his bite on Patrice Bergeron during the 2011 Stanley Cup Final). However, things have reached a whole new and really uncalled level.
After his cheap shot on the Rangers' Ryan McDonagh. fans of the NYR took to Twitter to threaten Burrows' life.

Hey Rangers fans, you have every reason to be pissed or hate Alex Burrows, but this is a bit much.
