    Is this becoming some type of fad?!?! Along with half naked woman, jumping around in hooker boots shaking their pom poms?!?! They didnt feel the need to do it then, they shouldnt feel the need to do it now! A # should be retired when the player retires WITH the franchise. ROH, maybe yes, but retire the #…please, give me a break. The way he left the team was insulting and I think this would open some wounds some would like to remain healed!!!

    I really don’t think he belongs in the Ring of Honour, let alone having his jersey retired (although no one’s worn 96 since.. hmm..). And although I do believe that Bure has the statistics to be the first Canucks inducted in the Hockey Hall of Fame (as I also blogged about), I guess I’m okay with the suggestion that a Canucks trophy be named after him – especially considering it doesn’t have a name yet itself.

  3. To be honest, I’m torn on this.

    Pavel deserves to be honored, but not in the same manner as the Smyls, Lindens, Naslunds and McLeans who did this organization proud on and off the ice.

    That said, I agree wtih you, Chris, that he should make the HHOF, especially considering his stats.
