Today at Canucks Army we thought it was time to retire Bure’s number (something I’m still personally unconvinced about because I’m the world’s grumpiest young man), previewed tonight’s Canucks home-game against the Phoenix Coyotes and looked at what we can expect from Vancouver’s forward deployments headed into the postseason.
