What's your point?
I already mentioned that Linden and Bure never got along. In fact, the only time they saw eye-to-eye was when Keenan took over.
Where was Bure when Linden had his jerseys retired?
Where was Bure's congratulations?
I don't recall Pavel being anywhere near Vancouver for the Big Canuck Anniversary celebrations,either.
The point is that Pavel alleges the false story of his holding out during the playoffs emanated from within.
Gillis states the .org extended an invitation to honor Pavel and Pavel rejected it.
Problem is,if you are sticking the franchise's best ever player in the RoH and the guys hanging in the rafters could not hold your jockstrap then there is no point in showing up to only be humiliated.
Now the .org look pretty sad as it is the majority of the fans that wish to honor him,but the suits saw their rules of entitlement as taking precedence over what the majority of fans want.
