BRIEF HISTORY: 
      Pavel Bure was born in 1971, in Moscow, Russia. He started playing for CSKA at the age
      of 16. Pretty good, eh? This also included stints with the Soviet Juniors and Red Army
      until he had his rookie season with the Vancouver Canucks in 1991-92. He was drafted in
      the sixth round of the '89 entry draft.  He didn't like the way things were run in 
      Vancouver, and demanded to be traded.  Pavel now plays for the Florida Panthers, along
      with some other great players, like Mike Vernon and Rob Neidermeyer.  Pavel had the most 
      goals in the NHL in the regular season, unfortunately he wasn't enough to get the 
      Panthers past the first round of the playoffs, where the Devils shut them down.
