Pavel Bure

Whats the status of Pavel? Is he retired?

Heres a scenario. Pavel is signed until 04-05. The lockout year. How about aquiring his rights and praying he is ready for the 05-06 season. Insurance is paying him anyways...

It shouldn't take to much to get him. A little contract restrucuring under the new CBA could workout to a couple million plus incentives. He would be a UNREAL Oiler.

Is it worth a try? I think so.

If he doesn't recover then he can retire.

I think he might be under the same thing that Berard did... which is basically if he came back, he'd have to pay back all kinds of insurance money.

Not 100% sure on that though.

As a player Pavel bure is an incredible hockey player, not unlike most russian other players but he does rise above...the status with pavel bure's career is that it is over his knee is unrepairable to the nhl's standards and thus he is finished. it would however be nice to get him on te oilers roster but the chances are nearly impossible because even with the cba he would still want the max he could get and we wouldnt be able to afford him
