    I don't know how old he is but today we should recall the short but awesome career of one of the best goalscorers to ever play the game

    yeah, whoever was selling it definitly didn't know what the crazy backwards letters on the back meant, or they probably would have charged more.

    no, I looked up the letters on the interweb. it's P.Bure and it's #10.

    It's not an official replica jersey by any means, but still really cool.

    funny story about Russian women and hockey;


    I worked for a couple years with this middle-aged Russian guy named Andrei. During the last Olympics we were ragging on him because the Russian womens team got pummeled by Canada.

    Me: "Andrei, what happened last night?"
    A: "eh?"
    Me: Your women, they got killed"
    A: "who?"
    Me: "Hockey. Our women beat your women in hockey."
    A: "Oh...who care? I must explain you something. In Russia, women is beautiful, and she smell nice, and she is always home when you come from work. Russian woman does not play hockey like angry lesbian you have in Canada. So you see, it does not matter."

    One of my favourite quotes of all time.

    36 years old and I bet he'd still be good for 30+ if his knees still had anything left. Its a shame the greatest scorers are always cut down in their prime-Neely, Bure, Bossy, Lemieux...

    I'll always remember how great he was at waiting for an outlet pass from his own zone.

    I've seen the Russian Rocket play a few games when he came to Buffalo. I always was hooked on a Mogilny-Bure showdown. It was tougher when they became teammates in Vancouver. I liked the article in the Buffalo News after the Canucks beat the Sabres 4-1 the night before. The heading read Bure: 2 Mogilny 0. Instead of maybe a traditional "Sabres fall short to Bure-Canucks."

    I remember how much he and Sergei Federov both wanted Anna Kournikova.
