I don't give a crap about retired numbers anymore after the Naslund retirement. IMO the ring of honour killed the retired numbers significance. Having both is silly. Why have different levels of "honour"?

Bure's going to the HHOF. The freakin' HHOF. And the Canucks mgmt have to think about if he belongs in their ring of honour? :picard:

He's the first player being inducted as a Canuck. You'd think we would retire his number.

Maybe they should retire 96 instead of 10?

Wow. I remember the time when Bure wasn not in the HHOF. People here were iffy about the retired number. Now, everyone wants Bure's number to be up in the rafters?

I'm not too sure. But Bure should have been in the ROH 2 seasons ago!

ROH for sure, retired mmm maybe not. just the way his time here ended. based on just hockey retired but the canucks look at more than that.

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

No comment yet from the Canucks

Does the HHOF keep track of which team the inductees are inducted as a member?

If so, did Bure get inducted as a Canuck?

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.

This is obvious, the very first Canucks Jersey to go in the hall of fame should be retired. The display case shows more than one jersey but the main one should be the first Canuck's jersey. #10 or #96

Honestly, I don't think Bure deserves a retired number. Retired numbers are for player you'd feel weird to have some 4th line rookie playing for us in the season wearing that number.

Now that he's inducted in the HOF, the next step is retire his damn number.. It's a shame that the best player to ever play for this Franchise doesnt have his number up in the rafters.

I think they should retire 96. (Still honours the player without taking a popular # out of circulation)

Great player and now a member of HHOF. Should be a no brainer imo

#10 should be in the rafters. I have always said this and Pavel's induction to HHOF makes the Canucks look silly.

It is high time bridges were built and Pavel brought back into the fold.

Perhaps one day we will have a player who is more exciting to watch and has better talent than Bure....but I doubt it.

He wouldn't show up to be embarrassed at the R O H ceremony. Only Canuck in the hall but not good enough for the rafters???? Only Canuck on talent alone who deserves to have their # retired. (Sedins may change that)

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.
