Pavel Bure appreciation thread

As you may know, one of the best Russian ice hockey players ever, Pavel Bure accepted the position of general manager of the Russian Olympic ice hockey team, which means his career as a player is probably over, since he hasn't played since 2003 due to the knee injury. Also known as the "Russian rocket", he was one of the fastest players on the ice, not to mention his great individual technique. If my information is correct, he scored 438 goals in 702 games played in the NHL, where he played 12 seasons. Unfortunately, his career was interrupted many times due to injuries, suffered from defenders who just couldn't stop him without foul play. Even though he never won the Stanley Cup, Olympic gold or World Cup title with Russia, he remains one of the best ice hockey players of the last 20 years.

Thank you Pavel for everything.

Well, that's not much of a compliment, is it?

I have nothing but respect for the Russian rocket.

Good luck to him with the NT.

the guy who played 3 games in 3 seasons for the Rangers? I think in NYC his legacy will be anything by great, in American sports if you can't make your name in cities like LA, NYC, Chicago your not going to be known as a legend

Maybe that was because of his injury? Or do you think he deliberately stayed off the ice? But nobody can deny his contribution to Vancouver Canucks team on his first few seasons when he was still healthy. They were below average team, but with him they arrived to the Stanley Cup finals.

HS, why do you even bother coming here if you hate Russia and whatever is in anyway connected with it?
