Maybe it's to do with Bure's game misconduct on game 3 of the Finals, but I'd take Linden anytime.
Game 7 when it mattered Linden scored twice. Bure may have helped us get to the Finals but he didn't seem to thrive under the pressure. Maybe he was injured and beaten up like the rest of the guys, but he didn't seem to elevate his game in the Finals.

Without a goal in Game 7, offensively I would say Bure.

Without much of anything in game 7, in terms of 'heart' my vote goes to Linden.

Bure had Ovechkin kinda power. He would hit and play dirty if he had to. He could protect himself, but Gino had his back too!

He was the type of player that was around a decade ahead of his time in terms of a combination of speed, skill & heart/power.

Linden. He was amazing in every game 7 this team ever played with him. Remeber the Dallas game 7?

He was the heart and soul of this team until he got traded and until he retired. The day the Canucks win the cup i will be incredibly happy but then saddened by the thought that Linden never got that second chance that the team should have brought him.


PS. I wasn't able to watch the 94 run and didn't get to watch Bure that much. Got into the Canucks in late 90's early 200's. So missed out on some good players. And even though i've seen highlights on youtube, i'm sure it just isn's the same. This obviously has affected my decision here lol

If Linden was 20, yeah him..., speed, size, mad skills AND leadership. In 91'...

But 94 Linden, 94 Bure?

Give your head a shake people, its an easy Bure decision. We lost our last two play off series due to physical match up problems, first and foremost. Linden showed incredible courage, but partly because he fought through getting completely beat up to the point of loosing his effectiveness? Bure offered lightning speed, also power, extreme explosiveness and nobody could match up with him. He alone could swing a series on physical skills.

And then he could score!

I personally hate Bure. Greedy little turncoat, puke! I would much rather cheer for Linden, but Bure was easily the most dynamic, game breaking talent I have ever seen!

edit; (no I never saw Gretzky live, Lemiex...)

Wondering what the fanbase thinks of this one: Linden of 94 or Bure of 94?

Linden:
heart
Motivation
Leadership
Offense
grit
determination
clutch

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ieRID-sEvuw&feature=related

Bure:
Offensive powerhouse
clutch
determined
razzle dazzle
speed
some heart

For those of you who think Bure would get run over by Boston:::

I'd pick Linden surprisingly, because our issue all along has been motivation and leadership. The guys needed heart and determination more than anything, and I think Linden defined that attitude for the 94 team.

For the love of god, shut up about Cody Hodgson. If you feel as though he could have made a difference in last years playoffs, go and become a Buffalo fan.


You and Gillis wish this goes away,but it never will.

Get used to it or stop replying to those that elect Cody Hodgson as an option in an internet blog .

After all, Cody was an option.Two players that hung em up years ago is the fantasy this thread is.

Acceptance of reality should make your summer more stress free.

I voted Bure


Everybody brings up the Shane Churla hit, but other than that one hit, you wouldn't considered Bure tough as nails. At one point, Quinn had to put Bure on a line with Odjick just to protect him, because other players were running rough shot at him.

Cliff Ronning on Trevor Linden's 1994 Stanley cup playoff run.


"You don't know this, but Trevor Linden had cracked ribs and torn rib cartilage for the last four games of the 1994 Stanley Cup Final. You can't imagine what it's like to hear your captain, in a room down the hall, screaming at the top of his lungs as they injected the needle into his rib cage. Knowing him, he probably thought we couldn't hear. He would then walk into our dressing room like nothing had happened. That was inspirational."



That's a man you need, not a prima donna.

PS Bure in his prime would score 70 goals easily in today's game without the clutching and grabbing.

Okay maybe not easily... but I bet he could do it.

Game 7 when it mattered Linden scored twice. Bure may have helped us get to the Finals but he didn't seem to thrive under the pressure. Maybe he was injured and beaten up like the rest of the guys, but he didn't seem to elevate his game in the Finals.



Some facts (and opinion):

Bure made a bigger difference in the 1994 Stanley Cup Finals.

Considering Bure had 8 points in the Stanley Cup Final, including an assist in Game 7, he would have been fairly useful in the Finals. He came up big in Game 5 with a three-point effort, scoring two goals in New York to keep the Canucks from being eliminated. He had at least a point in every game except Game 2. When Messier was about to steal Game 5 from the Canucks, Pavel fired back with two goals to regain the lead for Vancouver.

Much to my surprise as I looked back, Trevor didn't do anything in the series until Game 7. He went pointless in Games 1, 2, 3, and 5. He only had an assist in each of Games 4 and 6. Ultimately, he had 2 points going in to Game 7.

You can check out the box scores here:
http://www.hockey-re...1994_games.html

As we all recall, Bure also helped the Canucks move past the first round that year with the Game 7 overtime goal against Calgary. That year, he scored 60 goals in the regular season, and led the team in playoff scoring with 31 points in 25 playoff games.

Trevor and Pavel were both clutch, but Pavel had more firepower and could overwhelm the opponent with speed and aggressive offense. Against a goaltender like Tim Thomas, Pavel could have made a few moves and skated around him, or at least beaten everyone else to his rebounds.

Bure was widely considered a Conn Smythe finalist for the Canucks in 1994. He would have given everything he had to win the Stanley Cup if he had played in the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals. While we all appreciate Trevor for his personality, character, and leadership, Pavel would have put that 2011 team over the edge.

Pavel had more heart than fans tend to believe. He cared about this team and wanted to help this team achieve success, but he felt mistreated by the organization and Pat Quinn. We can all blame Quinn for chasing him out of the city.

Trevor Linden of course, Linden always was clutch in the playoffs, and his heart to win was bigger then any other player. Also Trevor was the only one to score the 2 goals in game 7 in 1994, with broken ribs and and torn rib cartilage, now that's heart and determination to win.


In game seven, Linden scored twice (the next player to get two goals in a game seven was Alex Tanguay in 2001) but the Canucks lost, 3–2.[29] Linden finished second on the team in playoff scoring, with 12 goals and 25 points.[20] It was revealed afterwards that Linden had played through the finals with broken ribs and torn rib cartilage.[30]
