Pavel Bure Inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame Perhaps the most electrifying and vilified player to ever wear a Canucks jersey, Pavel Bure is one of four hockey players now in the the Hockey Hall of Fame. Along with Bure, Joe Sakic, Mats Sundin and Adam Oates were all inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. The four players were presented their Hall of Fame rings at a press conference Monday morning. The mere mention of Bure’s name can bring out the best in Vancouver fans, gushing about he is the greatest Canuck of all time; or you get the fans who complain about his acrimonious split with the team. Either way you look at it, Pavel Bure was one helluva hockey player. Here is my top five Pavel Bure moments. #5. Penalty Shot vs. Mike Richter Alright, this may seem like a weird selection for the top five, especially since he doesn’t score, but like my other top fives, this is mine…and it’s memorable for me because I remember exactly where I was, who I was with and what I was doing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulUFtK2xLnY&NR=1&feature=fvwp #4. The Mother of All Elbows The 1994 Stanley Cup run could probably have a top five of it’s own, however, this is one of those ones that nowadays you’d wonder: “How many games would Bure have gotten for that hit?” I’m not condoning this type of play, I just remember everything about where I was when it happened. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5oYABjkWiJc #3. Stick to Skate In a preseason game against Boston (Preseason, Boston? What the crap?) Pavel Bure does something spectacular and out skates the snot out of Ray Bourque and buries one of the prettiest goals I’ve ever seen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVNIxAZsqhA #2. 1998 Nagano Games. Five Goal Game A dominant performance from the Russian Rocket in the semifinal against Finland in the 1998 Winter Olympics. Not only does Bure score five goals, he also records the first three Russian goals. These are the game highlights, so bare in mind you have to listen to the announcer annoyingly pronounce Bure’s name for a good five minutes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jL_p_kMMc5E&feature=related #1. Brown to Bure Game 7 Overtime Goal I left this play off of my top five Canucks moments because I don’t feel like it’s one of my moments. Top 10 for sure, but not in my top five. However, this being a Pavel Bure top five it is most certainly deserving of being in here and in my number one spot. Enjoy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHB_XpMXg-A CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT THE CANUCKS CLUBHOUSE TODAY AT NWSPORTSBEAT!
