Pat Caputo: Three Reasons Shawn Burr Was A Great Red Wing

By Pat Caputo  @PatCaputo98

1. Although he didn’t play on a Stanley Cup championship team, Burr, the organization’s first-round draft in pick 1984, was a big part of the Red Wings’ turnaround during the late 1980s and early 1990s.

2. Burr was a solid two-way player, who was also very tough.

3. Nicknamed “Skippy,” Burr was a genuinely good person, who was not only loved by Red Wings’ fans, but respected in every sense. He will be missed.

Former Detroit Red Wing Shawn Burr passed away Monday at the age of 47.
