[Confirmed] Vancouver Canucks WILL Retire Pavel Bure's #10 & PollDiscussion
Posted 06 April 2013 - 04:14 PM
Love to see all of the bad blood resolved and this put to rest. His jersey is being retired where it belongs!

Bottom line is, the ownership at the time just didn't have deep enough pockets to keep Bure. So instead of being honest with him, they screwed him around and made promises to him they knew he couldn't keep.
Thank god we have the ownership we have now that treat players with the utmost respect.

most exciting player of all time
I agree with this. Looking around, in the history of the game, there is no other player like him ever to play the game like that. The closes one is actually Bobby Hull, but anyways, I agree.
For sure one of the deadliest goal scorers to EVER play hockey.
Well, I , I feel very good about this draft, but I, I think, potentially you know were gonna have 3 or 4 NHL players out of this group, ummmm, you know like we are not going to prejudice to were they are from.

Are they going to retire it this season?
Probably next season. Playoffs are coming, so I don't think they will focus on Bure

Didn't this guy end up not wanting to play for the canucks, and demanded a trade, essentially? Doesn't sound like someone who is a real franchise guy. very good, but I don't know about the jersey retirement if he is demanding a trade out of vancouver at some point.
that was Patrick Roy

If we don't even dump one veteran, I'll stop posting on CDC until October 7th. It's that disappointing. - Tom Sestito, June 27th.

Pavel Bure is the reason I watched hockey as a kid, he is the reason I fell in love with the game, and will always be one of my favorite canucks. I am so happy that this organization is finally doing what is right and honoring Bure. He was truly a treat to watch growing up and if I ever had the chance to meet him I would tell him without a doubt he is the REASON I am a canucks and hockey fan. I love Bure.
BIG ME TOO!!!!!!!!!

Bure defied the stereotype that Russians didn't play with heart in the playoffs.
