    This is a presentation I have wanted to create for quite a long time. I am proud to finally be able to share it with everyone. The film, titled Pavel Bure: A Rocket Through Time, is an 85-minute retrospective about the career of one of the NHL's most dynamic, electrifying, compelling figures of all time, Pavel Bure -- The Russian Rocket. There are many hockey films that communicate the history of their subjects through interviews and narration, but often a lack of footage of the players undermines the illustration of their impact on the sport. In the case of Pavel Bure, more often than not, people are only ever told about Pavel's tenacious, mesmerizing ways on the ice; most highlight reels only capture a small fraction of Bure's brilliance. Words and phrases such as "electrifying" and "he could bring people out of their seats" need to be reinforced with a corresponding visual representation. This feature is a non-stop show-and-tell of Bure's abilities as a player and his effect on the hockey world.

    Over 300 of his goals at the NHL and international levels are on display here, as well as a plethora of other defining plays and attributes including his end-to-end rushes, assists, explosive body checks, forechecking, creative, improvised plays and intelligent decisions in all three zones. He was the complete package -- a sniper, playmaker, end-to-end rusher and warrior on the ice with a lethal goal-scoring instinct and an ability to elevate his game to even greater heights when the stakes were high. There were many additional nuances in Bure's game that were often overlooked during an era when the odd late-night highlight may have been all that many people saw of him. Many of those lesser-known elements are on display in this presentation.

    Each stage of Bure's career is highlighted during the film, from his days with CSKA Moscow to his final days with the New York Rangers. The images are accompanied by a soundtrack of carefully-chosen excerpts from film scores and popular recordings of songs from the 1970s to 2000s designed to reflect the themes and tone of the events throughout Bure's story. It's a soundtrack for a star whose presence and aura transcended the sport. He became an idol to an entire generation and had a transformative influence on the hockey culture of the cities he played for, especially Vancouver. The phenomenon was known as Pavelmania, and the on-ice reasons for it are fully exhibited here.

    Pavel Bure was a special player, once called unstoppable. He was the sixth-fastest player in NHL history to score 400 goals and continued to be a dominant force to the very end in spite of the injuries and challenges that robbed one of hockey's all-time greats of consistent opportunities. His jaw-dropping brilliance was a unique gift to the sport, and thus his legacy must not be lost with time.

    Enjoy the presentation.

    Kudos, nice showing.

    Bure was awesome when I was young and learning about the sport of hockey after the Stars moved to Dallas; I listened to the ‘93-94 Stanley Cup Finals on whatever AM radio station played it.

    The Dallas Stars, Pavel Bure and Teemu Selanne locked me as a fan of the sport of hockey.

    him and Mogilny were the fastest and purest skaters ever imo... their stand up style and still amazing speed was a joy to watch... unlike for instance ovechkin of today, with that hunched over ugly skating style

    If he played today, he'd be like McDavid.

    The craziest thing about Bure is he's already one of the best goal scorers and in my opinion players ever (not quite as good as Crosby/Ovechkin/McDavid), but he actually looks even better than he was.

    Bure is one of those players from the past that if he were somehow time traveled to present day I believe he'd be an elite player even against today's talent.

    What amazed me beyond his unbelievable skating, skill with the puck and goal scoring ability was just how effortless he made it look. I know it's cliche, but with him it was so true. Just watch any random highlight goal he scored and it's just ... almost casual.

    Thanks for sharing, saved to watch in it's entirety later.

    I'll be honest. The background music in the first few minutes makes me feel like I'm going to get stabbed to death by a masked psychopath, but I do enjoy watching Bure highlights so it evens out.

    18 minutes in, just amazing work.

    Also, that Prism song is perfect for that sequence.

    Bure was probably the most electrifying player of the 90s, and it's a shame how Vancouver treated him. You could probably make a documentary on the whole fiasco that led to Bure's departure from Vancouver (not to mention the fact that Vancouver conducted some shady business to magically make Bure draft eligible in the first place with some doctored up game sheets).

    It seems the seeds were planted in 1994 when some supposed rumor came out during the Cup Final series that Bure was holding Vancouver ransom for more money.

    Canucks-Bure relationship was bad from the beginning

    No he wouldn't. He'd be a top goal scorer, but he wouldn't be McDavid.

    Fantastic job!!

    The one thing I hate, not with this video but with all older highlights, is that the quality is so bad when in reality if you watched these games on live TV, they looked really good and fans who are like under 30 or so don't have the chance to really appreciate how good a lot of historic teams and players were because of it.
