20 Years Ago: Pavel Bure Played His First Game As A Canuck

New, comments

Canucks.com has a video up of it today. Damn. I am getting old. I was only 17 years old when Pavel Bure played his first game in the NHL. I remember the hype. I remember the show he put on in that first game. I remember so many of his goals and plays. I'll never forget his performance in the 1994 Playoffs, including the "mother of all elbows" on Dallas Stars' Shane Churla. I'll never forget the ugly circumstances under which he left Vancouver either. His number is heading to the rafters one of these days. If you are too young to remember Bure...you missed out on a "rock star". The video below is a pretty sweet tribute by Squire Barnes. Enjoy!
