Pavel is the same age as Selanne.

Imagine he had the ability to stay injury free like him. He could still be playing today.

- Hes having a baby boy in a couple weeks
- Hes here for an event tomorrow and for the Canucks For Kids Telefund
- Gino Odjick is having a son named Bure
- Tons of great memories playing in vancouver
- Enjoys the shootout after overtime

Edit: Sorry HV88, didnt see your post haha

God could you imagine Bure in the shootout.. lots of goalies getting soiled.

Either that's a jersey foul or Pavel is wearing a Brian Bradley jersey. Could the Canucks brass at least have gotten his sweat right for this photo op? If things stay they are in Canuckville, his number will be retired in blue. Why do they insist on changing history?



Awwww....

if they had some charity game and he was in it, it will sell out.


That's a great idea! Like a scrimmage game they had at the beginning of the season. I haven't been inspired to catch any games live this season but i would definitely want to see that and all proceeds go towards charity. Would be cool if they retired his jersey then as well. It would be amazing if he did an autograph session too. I have a Bure jersey that I would love to have autographed. Knowing he's in town kinda makes you giddy. What awesome memories and excitement he's brought to this town.

i say bring him out just in time for the playoffs.... canucks management should rather than make it a signing... pay him what ever the canucks owed him and just solve the situation once and for all.... even if bure doesn't play a game....

I loved the fact Bure was in the house, and that the relationship is mending. When I think to the 2011 Finals, the Bruins being able to have Bobby Orr bring the crowd alive like that, we need to honour and cherish our own superstars. Bure is a legend in these parts, and he deserves to be treated like one.

Hopefully someday he'll have his number retired, just not within the net 5 years or so, as it would be too many too soon.

Great to see Pavel at the game tonight, definitely one of the highlights.
I always hated that his jersey wasn't retired so hopefully that changes soon and then we can be proud that he's a member of the hockey hall of fame for his time as a Canuck.

No offense but Bure does not deserve to have his number retired, he only played just over 400 games for the Canucks. 7th in all time team scoring, give me a break.

For the Canucks to retire a 4th number would be a joke. Had he played longer here, maybe you could make the case yes, but thats not the case.

Rip me all you want, but thats my opinion. I dont care how much skill he had, simply he hasnt done enough to deserve it.

Baggins and I had an immense debate about whether or not Pavel's jersey deserved retiring. In my view, when Naslund had his jersey retired, that opened up the door for Bure.

While Naslund accomplished a lot in regular seasons, Bure accomplished more in the playoffs. While Naslund owns important team records, so does Bure. Bure in fact owns more team records. And he is in the hof. That might not be a factor to some people, but it is. Sure, he didn't spend a tremendous amount of time here, but in that shorter time he accomplished quite a lot.

The way he left is a concern to some. That wasn't his fault. Epic posts about that. There was rumours about him. All bs. There was mismanagement. There was the money. He left for that reason as well. And can you blame him? He was a superstar. One of the league's best. And the Canucks at the time were one of the poorer franchises in the league. (Bure was paid 19mil by the Canucks and 47mil by the Rangers and Panthers during his shortened career.)

I certainly hope we're burying the hatchet and retiring his jersey. If he doesn't have his jersey retired, so be it. But his alongside Smyl, Naslund and Linden? That doesn't look out of place at all and everyone knows it.

I guess you don't remember Bure pretty much bringing this team back from the brink of bankruptcy by putting fans in the seats.

Everyone forgets there was a time where the Canucks were close to leaving this city. Bure was this teams first real superstar, and he transformed this franchise. A whole generation of kids grew up Canucks fans because of this player. He was electrifying plain and simple, and he made fans in this city believe.

He deserves every honor he gets.

There is only one place for Pavel to be and that is Vancouver AKA home. For all the kids out there that missed what kind of hockey this guy could play, oh boy. If you think the twins are great, Pavel was better then them together. The memories, the skill, the speed and the excitment. Most talented player ever to play for the team. We can only hope to see the jersey go up where it belongs.

Absolutely, well said. He is such an exciting part of our past and so many kids grew up idolizing him...it's been sad that we haven't been able to have him involved and pay tribute to him. It was a really great moment last night and brought a tear to my eye too.

I have a feeling you never actually saw him play and are simply referring to the stats. Doesn't work. Here's a stat they don't keep - how many times he made people gasp and jump out of their seats. You can't measure the buzz that he generated or the fact that he was a bonafide superstar and that he stood out from everyone else on the ice.

Absolutely. Everytime the guy touched the puck I expected something awesome to happen, much like the Sedins when they're on their game. The difference though is that Bure could do it all by himself, go end to end, deke around 2 or 3 defenders and then dirty dangle the goaltender. Some of the stuff the guy could do at full flight was just ridiculous (e.g. puck from stick to skate to puck vs. Boston).

Those nah sayers are seriously forgetting what Pavel has done for this franchise.

The younger generations and even the older generation referring to stats and the way he left.


Nothing, and I mean nothing in life especially in a sport like hockey will turn out perfect like it should. If it did we would've won the Cup already or players like Linden should not have been traded regardless of the return.

Bure turned this team around. He put fan in the seats where previously the Canucks were having a hard time selling out. It gave a new stadium in GM Place now... Rogers Arena.

Simple put, imagine if he wasn't here... The Canucks might have ended up like the Jets where they had to move and relocate!

Bure and everything he meant to the Canucks played a huge role in keeping and making the franchise successful.

It isn't like today where everything Canucks is successful, sold out games, crazy ticket prices, tv broadcasting... Everything hockey this, everything canucks that.

People were dumping tickets back then, most people didn't really cared too much about hockey unless you were a hockey fan. We had check if the Canucks were on TV that day.

Ignorant people don't recall what he did for the city not just the stick and puck he plays around with during his 7 years here
