Now that Bure has been inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame, do you think his number should be retired, put into the Ring of Honour, or neither?

Should be retired imo but it won't cause the Canucks think they're cool like that... <_<:sadno::picard:

Ring of Honour, but not retired

I don't think Bure deserves to be with true Canucks like Linden or Smyl.

Hell, I don't think Naslund should even be up there.

Should be in the ROH but he won't be. And I don't think #10 should be retired.

Pavel Bure will always be remembered as a Canuck but I just don't think the team is interested in any sort of association with him at all. Minutes after the HHOF inductions were announced, the Florida Panthers send out a series of congratulatory tweets to Pavel:

Florida Panthers@FlaPanthers

Congratulations to former #FlaPanthers player Pavel Bure, for being voted into the Hockey Hall of Fame today! #HHOF #NHL

Did you know? Bure still holds #FlaPanthers franchise records, including single-season tallies for most goals (59) and points (94).

The Russian Rocket. #HHOF http://say.ly/SgW3D2U

Did you know? Bure won the Rocket Richard trophy with #FlaPanthers in 2000 & 2001 as the #NHL's top goal scorer. #HHOF

A look into the Den of Honor Vault for Bure's reaction to playing with #FlaPanthers and winning the Rocket Richard: http://t.co/v0DhPBLQ

Canuck drafted. Most exciting player in Canucks uniform. Best raw talent player in Canucks history. Goes on for multiple scoring titles. Possible Hall of Famer? Yeah... Put #10 up there. If he's good enough for the game of hockey in general to honour, our lowly franchise should, too...

I didn't think this until recently, though, so I'm not a Bure fanboy or anything.

As much as I would like to see his jersey retired. Ring of Honour makes more sense.

No reason to retire his number (except fandom, and you can make a case for nearly any player based off that)

Ring of honour? sure.

I'm prepared to let Bure's sour departure here go if he is. All teams around the league are doing similar things... Let's bury the hatchet.

My view on the upcoming season is starting to get rosier by the day. Cheers.

Retired. One of the most exciting players to step into the 'Nucks uniform. Could bring an entire stadium to their feet.

As far as I can tell, no other Canuck in the HHOF has close to the number of seasons Bure was with us, or stats that Bure put up. He was the most exciting player to watch.

He deserved to be treated better when he was here. It's time to make amends, do the right thing, and honour him properly. Plus, the fans would love to see him back in the building. I'm sure he would get a very warm welcome.

Bure is essentially the first Canuck in the Hall of Fame, in that he's the only player in the Hall whose exploits with the Canucks make up the majority of his Hall of Fame case. No one in the Hall had spent their prime in Vancouver until now. That's a pretty big deal, so I think you could make a serious case that it should be retired.
