"We'll have a feature, video, gallery, fan media and team store special every day, beginning with Best of Bure. Derek - yes? - whip up a feature on Bure's top plays, okay?"
Coming up with Bure's top plays is as difficult as I imagine stopping the superstar was. The Russian Rocket began his career with 254 goals and 478 points in 428 games over seven seasons with Vancouver; if you know Bure highlights as well as I do, you know there weren't too many tap-in or dull empty net goals to go around.
Bure had a flair for the amazing, he brought Canucks fans out of their seats like no player in franchise history. I'm throwing my hands in the air here, this is mission impossible.
Enjoy, instead, five of my favourite Bure goals.
