He is one of the best goal scorers in the history of professional ice hockey. His career did not consist of "a few good years", but rather a complete decade of goalscoring dominance. Over the course of his career, he missed only about 200 games due to injuries, too, out of a potential 900.

Well you convinced me

And the question, does the SC show the greatness of a player? Many uknown players won it but it doesn't make them better?! You know the guy like Yzerman won SC only after 15 years!!! he entered the nhl. Only when guys like Fedorov, Larionov, Konstantinov, Lidstrom, Shanahan... appeared in the team he got this chance. Without them he wouldn't have big chances to win SC but without him the team still could win. Bure has never had such support but still he lead his team to the 7th game of SC final!

PS: I hope Bure will back healthy even he'll be 35.
