I would not go comparing Hull to Bure though. Bure was an immense pain to any coach defensively, while Hull was very much better defensively, willing to backcheck and go deep into his own end to retrieve a puck. Bure was more of a blueline hanger.
Definitely fast. 5 on 5 situation. But would like to know what Hull, a left winger, was doing at the top of the right face-off circle in that situation leaving a man uncovered in the slot?

High risk , high reward but his instincts could be used against him as well.
