If you were a Canucks fan in the 90's there was nothing like Bure in the league and seeing him was truly something special. It was a shame how things ended between the organization and our first real superstar. If there is a chance to make things right here I 'd love to see steps taken to bring him back to the fold.

I can't fathom how great it would have been to see Bure and Gretzky on the same line.

4 retired shirts
0 stanley cups

2 more when the sedins retire

laughable, really


You don't like the number of numbers being retired? Let's say they do retire #10 and the twins play for another 5 years. That's 6 numbers in 48 years. At that pace, it'll be another 352 years before half of the #s are retired. By that time Hockey probably won't even exist.

Your other thing about "trying to create a legacy". How can Bure not be the first person you think of when talking about the Canucks history? The only Hall of Fame calibre player. If there's only 1 jersey that should be up there, it's his.

I sure hope this happens, sure he didn't win a cup with us.. but he was our best player in our clubs history.. and turned a lot of fair weather hockey fans into die hard Canuck fans... And I think just for the fact alone he was the first canuck in the HHOF this should happen!

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


Tom Barrasso?

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.


There is one good thing to come out of the Messier era: it resulted in us getting the Sedins.

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.


There was allot more to it than that. Bure had personal reasons for wanting to go to Florida.

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.


And 3 cups. With a 4th on the way.

Sorry didn't realize winnning a stanley cup was a prerequisite for retiring a jersey.

Linden, Naslund, Smyl (who have their shirts retired now) were all great hockey players, leaders and members of the community. Falling short of the ulitmate prize, in no way, diminishes their amazing careers, or the quality of human beings they were.


Agree on Linden and Smyl. But Naslund was a weak captain, and by the end of his tenure, I got tired of listening to him make excuses for the team's substandard performance. If your team has the top scoring line in hockey, with the Sedins as your second line, and you can't make it past the second round of the playoffs, then you have a leadership problem.

Willie Mitchell won a Stanley Cup. We should retire his number.

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


Messier the most disgraced A-hole the Canucks ever had the displeasure of stating he was one of them.

So your assertion is that a team can only honor players if they won a cup?

I think you've missed the point of what jersey retirement means.

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.


I agree. No jersey retirement, but ROH for sure...
Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

You can thank Pat Quinn for screwing that one up.
