For many Canucks fans, especially those who grew up in the 1990s, Pavel Bure’s No. 10 jersey retirement ceremony was an emotional trip down memory lane.
Many fans took to Twitter to honour and thank the ‘Russian Rocket.’ Now 42 years old, Bure is considered as one of the greatest Canucks players to ever.

After watching the amazing Pavel Bure presentation, I am incredibly proud to be a Canuck. The @VanCanucks put on one hell of a show.

The #PavelBure jersey retirement was as much about the fans for which he played with such passion to entertain as it was about his career.
