This page is dedicated to Pavel Bure, without question the greatest hockey player right now: Here are some stats: Position : Right Wing Shoots : Left Height : 5'11" Weight : 185 Birth Date : 03/31/71 Place of Birth : MOSCOW, SOVIET UNION Currently Resides : Flordia Year Drafted : 1989 Round Drafted : 6 Overall Choice: 113 Sweater Number: 96 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.
