Pavel Bure was the most electrifying new generation hockey player of the dead puck era. While the likes of Jaromir Jagr, Dominik Hasek, Paul Kariya and Eric Lindros were all amazing hockey players, it was Bure had the rare ability to pull the fans out of their seats seemingly every time he touches the puck. Every goal the Russian Rocket scored and every rush he lifted off on was truly an event on to itself.
No one loved to score goals as much as Pavel Bure. Even in practice he wanted to see the twine bulge. In that sense Bure ranks as one of the greatest pure goal scorers in hockey history. Names like Mike Bossy and Rocket Richard are fair comparisons.
