Throughout the interview, Quinn was very supportive of Pavel, offering praise, defending his controversial departure from Vancouver, and providing his opinion on why Bure should have his number retired by the Canucks as well as why Pavel was a special player.
"Pavel certainly ranked up there, and when he was on the attack, there was nobody better."
"If the Canucks are wise at all, they'll come out and ask him to be there."
"If you're going to recognize anybody, you probably should recognize the most electrifying player we've ever had in uniform. We've had some great players, but nobody, nobody, was as electrifying as him."
Pat Quinn wholeheartedly supports the retirement of Pavel Bure's number into the rafters of Rogers Arena.
This is a follow-up to the Valeri Bure interview posted last year.
