For all who are hoping for a retirement of Pavel Bure's sweater, this might give you some hope.

According to Global News's sports reporter Squire Barnes:

Squire Barnes@sbarnesglobal

Pavel Bure hoping to help the Canucks out with visits to Childrens Hosp. and Canuck Place. Both sides trying to work out details.


Perhaps this is the start of a new relationship between Pavel and Vancouver that'll lead to a jersey retirement for Bure.


Would be pretty cool to see Pavel involved with the organization again.

This is management polishing up his image before his jersey retirement for sure.

This is the one thing that separated him from Linden and Naslund.

Great to see the wounds being healed.

Hopefully this leads to the Canucks mending the fences with Mark Messier as well and retire his number, free Lays day at Rogers Arena.

Saw this earlier on the news...still in the works, but it seems that a reconnecting with the community is part of the prelude to this inevitable ceremony.

Bure

The best Canuck player in history. No one comes close (which is why he is the ONLY Canuck player that we have had for a considerable time to make the HHOF).

Messier can shove em Lays where the sun don't shine. Messier was the worst player to fall from expectations in Canuck history.

Messier came here as a fraud and committed massive theft.

One day some of us will look back on the year and look at the chicago, and most of us will realize that it was a small bump in the road to the cup

Best Canuck ever. Had management not tried to run this team like it was still the 1950's and the players were nothing more than meat he would have played here until the end of his career.

Sometimes you ask for a trade when promises are not kept. 10 deserves to be on the roof.

Will the event happen this season or next ?

Bure is the one that really made me a true Canuck's fan.
Just loved watching him.

Number 10 in the rafter .... well deserved

This. Sorry, I love my team, but Bure played less than 500 games for this organization and things got really sour and now he's going to get his jersey retired? He was a magnificent player and could have easily scored 500 goals and 1000 points as a Canuck had he, you know, played a long, healthy career in Vancouver, but his actual resume does not warrant jersey retirement. Come on...

The Pittsburgh Penguins only have 2 jerseys retired and one is for a guy who passed away at a young age (Michel Briere). The only other retired jersey? #66 Mario Lemieux. Standards.

Other than Lemieux, Jagr and Crosby who else has Pittsburgh had that warranted jersey retirement. (2 still play)

I guess you could argue Ron Francis too

Bure deserved to be treated better by the Canucks. That was a completely different organization then.. New ownership now, and they clearly realize its about time this team and city rebuilds a burnt bridge.

Couldnt be happier for the Russian Rocket. Most talented and explosive Russian player of all time.

1 great player does not equal a great team.

Cups and jersey retirements don't go hand in hand. And they shouldn't.

Lots of great players (and people) have their jersey's retired and haven't won cups.

so? if given the opportunity to gripe about many of those retirements, i would do the same. the entire ceremony, to me, is stupid. just a way to sell tickets, create buzz, and manufacture status that otherwise wouldn't be there.

bure was a phenomenal, exciting player. i stood in line to meet him and get his autograph many times. i played hockey on the street with a tacky #10 drawn onto the back of my t-shirt. but that's it, that's "all" he was. just an exciting, explosive player. that, to me, is not justification for retirement. retirement should be reserved for those who embody an organization's philosophy both on and off the ice with an unheralded commitment to the team and its community, while achieving statistical success beyond reasonable compare.

in most cases, retirement should be reserved for those who become larger than the game itself, like gretzky was, and like crosby has sort of become. or, as toronto does, it should be reserved for players who sacrifice more than their glory years for the sport and team.

instead of retiring shirts, why not make them something of a legacy? why not give the #19 to players who fit a certain role, for example? why not create a running legacy within the organization, rather than suggest that a player like naslund will never come along in the duration of this organization? with the canucks' current shallow criteria, the team will have 30 shirts retired before the organization's centennial year.

LOTS of water under that bridge folks....

If they retire Bure's jersey then they should hang up Pat Quinn's right beside it - upside down....

Hate to break it to you, but professional sports is primarily a money making enterprise. Everything is about is ultimately to sell tickets, merchandise etc.. So relax and enjoy it.
