Appearing on Vancouver’s Team 1040 AM Tuesday, (Valeri) Bure was asked about Pavel’s exclusion from the Hall of Fame and immediately attacked the Canucks and their president and general manager, saying it was "pathetic" that the Russian Rocket’s No. 10 did not hang in the Rogers Arena rafters.
Any that had the number 10 on it. As for which team's jersey in particular, it's difficult to say. When I was brought up through the CSKA system we were always taught that when you wear the jersey you represent that club, and you have to do everything for that club. The same goes when you play for your country. That's why I can't tell you what the favorite was. All of them — USSR, CSKA, Vancouver, Florida, Rangers, Russia — were dear on their own.
It was time to go. It was time to do something new. I spent a lot of time there. And as I mentioned I have a lot to remember from those times. But every person has to move forward.
"I hope honestly for the Panthers to win some games and make the playoffs so it would be a fun place to go. A long time ago people on South Beach would go because it was exciting. I hope they bring that excitement back again.''
