[Video] Debunking Many Misconceptions About Pavel Bure's Game. And Why He Was Amazing.

63 posts in this topic

He scored 60 goals in a era of goltending that had them standing stright up most of the time.

For all we know, if the sedins played back then they could be averaging like 6 points a night EACH.

And pure snipers like ovi, stamkos, crosby could be getting like 100 goals easily.

Nice effort,OP.The similiarities of Orr and Bure are highly evident in style and stats.

Imagine if the Canucks had a Bobby Orr or Bourque,Coffey,Potvin,MacInnis equivelant to play with him?

I was looking at Pavel's shots on goal statistics.

Pavel led not just the team but the entire league in shots on goal many times.

Despite playing in only 65 games his rookie year he outscored all his team mates and led the team with 34 goals in those 65 games.

In Pavel's first,full NHL campaign he tallied 407 regular season SOG.

The closest to him was again Geoff Courtnall but Pavel near doubled his count of 214 SOG.

Pavel led the team in scoring and assists and SOG again in 93-94.

Same story in 94-95.

Pavel was injured in 95-96 and in 96-97 he played a short campaign but managed to lead the team in SOG again.

In 1997-98 he tallied a remarkable 329 SOG and led the team again in goals,assists and SOG,of course.

Bourque and Marcel Dionne are the all time leaders for SOG in NHL history.

If we look at DIonne's record the highest shot total he ever achieved in one campaign was 378.

Bourque's most prolific shooting year garnered 340 SOG.

Gretzky,in his highest goal scoring year ever had his highest tally of 369 SOG.

Lemieux had a maximum of 382 SOG as his highest SOG record.

Orr tallied 413 SOG in 1969-70.

No other Canuck makes the top 250 list.Not one.

Pavel made it four times-three top 45 campaigns-all time-all players-entire NHL history.

Bure is ranked amongst the very elite in NHL history in this category:

Pavel ranks 18th all time NHL and WHA players combined for the even handed goals scored record in one season.

Pavel did it twice at 45 goals and once with 44 even strength goals.

He makes the top list at 35 goals and again at 32 goals and again at 31 even handed goals scored campaigns.

Pave has five campaigns in the top 231 listed-all time.

Many people know he was a great player. It's just the way he left and the bad publicity that surrounded him that people are bitter with him.
