Pavel Bure was my favorite Canuck of all-time. Not only was he the most exciting Canuck IMO, but he was also the best (IMO, better than Naslund). The reason why I'd rather have Bure at his peak rather than Naslund, was because Bure knew how to elevate his game come crunch time.
In 94', Pavel Bure was an absolute MONSTER almost every time he stepped on the ice. He had a major presence. In comparison, I don't think Naslund has that. Naslund's game doesn't go down in the playoffs, but I don't see a signficant elevation or presence either.
I also think Bure was unfairly treated when he was in Vancouver. Management never backed him when (ridiculous) rumours surfaced that Bure was willing to sit-out in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals. Bure had requested to be traded quite a few times, and all this was ignored by mangement.
In 96' when Bure came back from his major knee surgery and suffered whiplash the 1st game of the season (nagged him all season), he was crucified all season long by the media.
During the 97/98 season, Bure returned to his old goal scoring ways. Although he did act pretty selfishly that year (I think its' debatable as to whether he was justified in doing that), Bure once again silenced all the critics. In the off-season, Bure once again requested to be traded...and it was ignored.
As his last resort, Bure decided to sit-out until he was traded. I don't blame the guy for doing that one bit.
So, IMO, Bure was the greatest Canuck of all-time.
