Pavel Bure's Number To Be Retired.

It's about time! The only Vancouver Canuck draft pick to ever enter the Hockey Hall of Fame. What this guy did on the ice was nothing short of extraordinary, one of only eight players in NHL history to ever score multiple 60 goal seasons. Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Brett Hull, Phil Esposito, Jari Kurri, Steve Yzerman & Mike Bossy being the others.

Regardless of him being in a foreign country and not knowing the language, as well as being screwed over from day one by the ole boys club in the Canucks organization at the time he still performed unbelievably on the ice. Good on the Canucks ownership for this!

He is the reason I started following the team back in early 90s.

Yes. This was necessary. One of the best players ever to wear a Canuck Jersey.

If this is true, it will lift our curse and we'll win the Cup. You heard it here first.

About time. He's the guy who made the Canucks into an actual franchise.

No denying that. With much respect to the Sedins, Bure was our best player ever.

Happy for Pavel even though I don't believe his or other jerseys should be retired by the Canucks.

Hopefully I can get tickets for this game this year!
