ONLY IN VANCOUVER!!!!!

his the only Canuck in the hall of fame doesn't need any other reason and if they don't then this sums up this organization.

In the 93 -94 season when the Nucks went to the cup finals Bure scored 107 points.

The team had a total of 279 goals and Pavel had 60 of them,setting up 47 more.

So,officially he was in on 35% + of the entire goals scored in the entire regular season.

In the playoff run from game one vs. Calgary to the final cup game 7 in NY the Nucks scored 76 goals.

Pavel scored 16 times and added 15 assists.Pavel contributed to approx 40% of all goals scored in the fabled cup run.

Scoring 20-25% single -handedly while being in on near 40% of all goals scored is more than icing on the cake.

It is almost half the cake.

For the record ,Pavel joined the Canucks when I was 32 years of age but anybody can figure out his contribution % on stats,alone.

Anyone who snubs Pavel as deserving to have his jersey (10!) retired is either:

a. a snot-nosed kid who has never seen him play

b. a grumpy negative nelly that only sees one side of every story

c. can't read a stats page

d. hates exciting hockey and wants the red line and water skiing put back in

e. thinks hockey players have to be "role models in the community" (even while adjusting to life in a foreign country half ways around the world and at the same time thrust into the center of attention) in order to give them any credit for outstanding hockey ability

If Gillis has any say, i'm sure it'll be a possibility. He used to be his agents. As a kid, i was soured on the team for a bit after we lost Trevor and Bure.

I think Gillis has some other important issues to work on in the next few days. Probably not even on his radar right now.

However, the most interesting thing about this is that Gillis was Bure's agent and Burke was the GM towards the end of Bure's time here in Vancouver. Now Gillis is on the side of Vancouver management. Of all the people who knows what really went on behind the scenes, I'm sure Gillis does.

retire 96, no one's going to use it anyway. ROH is a minimum.

What is with people like you? What number did he score back to back 60 goal seasons in? What number did he win the Calder in? What number will Shane Churla remember while he's sipping his soup in a retirement home? No matter what number he wanted or wore later in his career, he will always be number 10!

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

it doesn't matter, 96 is never going to be used anyway, might as well use that one to retire it.

Ring of Honour. Retired jerseys are for players who also contribute in the community like the Sedin's, Linden, and Naslund. Unfortunatly, Bure was never a big contributer to our community. Furthermore, as Valerie rips into our orgainization for not having his brothers jersey retired it seems less likely the ring of honour will happen anytime soon.

I think Gillis offered Bure the ring of honour, but was refused. That is about the time that Veronica went off on the Canucks for not retiring his number. If he gave Gillis an ultimatum of number retirement or nothing, then screw him. That's just more proof of his selfishness.

Bure only fills one criteria of number retirement(skillset). His community work was almost non-existant and his character left much to be desired. Bure was the best offensive threat we've had. It's too bad he wasn't more of a team player. His goal to assist ratio is proof enough of that. I don't think he deserves his number in the rafters. He shouldn't be rewarded for hanging around in the neutral zone waiting for a pass from the rest of the team; who worked their butts off in all zones.

Love how the $20 million dollar Mats Sundin shares the HHOF inductee news release/feature with Pavel on the Canucks home page.

Gillis shovels $20 million at Mats,he plays half a season,comes in out of shape but shares the spotlight with Pavel on Pavel's biggest hockey day.

Classy move,Canucks.

Go to the Canucks 'All Time Players' regarding Pavel-no news,no notes,no features,no bio,no photo,no nothing.Squat.

http://canucks.nhl.c....htm?id=8455738

Go to the Canucks 'All Time Players' regarding Mats -two pictures for his 9 goals in a Canucks uniform.

The Canucks list his playoff accomplishments as a Canuck and there are twenty-seven(27) videos and fifteen (15)'features' on the legendary Canuck,Mats Sundin:

http://canucks.nhl.c....htm?id=8451774

Pavel:

Four time Vancouver Canuck Molson Cup winner

Three time Vancouver Canuck MVP-Cyclone Taylor winner

Four time Vancouver Canuck leading scorer-Cyrus H. McLean winner

Five time Vancouver Canuck 'Most Exciting Player' winner

Most points record as a Canucks rookie

Calder Memorial Trophy (1992)

NHL First All-Star Team (1994)

Best Forward at Olympic Games (1998)

NHL Second All-Star Team (2000, 2001)

Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy (2000, 2001)

Played in NHL All-Star Game (1993, 1994, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001)

Pavel should be honored in statue form on the grounds of Rogers,for saving the franchise and keeping the Canucks in Vancouver.

Nothing else would entice Pavel back here and the honor is fitting,while not sticking it to the corporate suits that have left Pavel without honor or distinction,despite saving their corporate bacon.

Although he may not come to unveil the statue,the Canucks org will have honored him and the fans will accept that past performance may not be indicative of what we can expect going forward.

The Canucks organisation have LONG held this position against Pavel ,disaffecting their best player ever and their fans long enough.

If the corporate suit attitude and denial transforms one day and they begin actually honoring fans and their most beloved players over their troglodytic mindset,perhaps the big drought will end,as well.

LOL if you didn't think Bure worked his butt off. Jeff Cournall recently stated that Bure ushered in a whole new standard of working out and being it top shape throughout the whole league. He blew away everyone else before him.  And he used that same dedication on the ice. Unlike Mogilny, another Russian playing here, Pavel was never criticized for not giving 100 percent in every game he played. If you went to any game, no matter who the opponent, you were treated to the Pavel show.

I wonder how much you volunteer to visit sick children or how much of your salary you donate to hospitals? Sure its great if a hockey player donates time and effort in this regard, but it isn't part of the job description. Plus he's adjusting to life in a foreign country, can barely speak the language, and Burkey and Canuck management is treating him like crap.

I'm not going to list all his stats...not only in the NHL but internationally...as others have already done that. He scored more points per game than even the Great One! He's in the freaking HHOF for petes sake! How embarrassing to this city if we don't put his number in the rafters, we'd probably be the only team in the history of the NHL to NOT retire a jersey from an alumni of the HHOF.
