Sounding Off: Bure To The Hall

With the Russian Rocket, Pavel Bure entering the Hockey Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2012, Panthers fans (and a former teammate, thank you Mr. Laus) sounded off on facebook and twitter. The following is some of floridapanthers.com's favorites. While it doesn't measure to the level of his entire 152 goals scored as a Panther, they're all great in the same.

Alain Combes: There are so many great moments! This guy is the reason I'm a Panther fan.

@DerrtyDude: Hearing and reading Pavel Bure's name so many times today is an undescribable feeling. Best ever. #RussianRocket

Linda Klein Hovnan: Loved hockey when he played. He made it exciting...

Brian Kesecker: Watched him his whole career & when he came to the Panthers he was even more exciting. What a player. BURE RULED THE ICE

@HayIsNB: Tonight is a great night. My all-time favorite NHL player, Pavel Bure, will be inducted into the Hockey Hall Of Fame. #RussianRocket

Dara Ross: He could score from behind the net! Everytime he had the puck he brought the fans out of their seats! Most exciting player ever to wear the Panthers jersey!

Carlos Paguaga: Favorite player ever. Very well-deserved accolade for an immensely fascinating player.

@JChev86: Awesome to see my all-time fave @FlaPanthers player, Pavel Bure, inducted into the #HHOF tonight. Still wear my jersey every so often! #nhl

Scott Jacobs: Him and the Beezer are my two favorite Panthers ever. Haven't seen an offensive force like him on the Panthers since. Maybe never will. The Russian Rocket!

Barbara Rotolante Taunton: LOVED seeing him and his brother play together on the same team.... Hockey is the only sport I really ever got into thatnks to the Panthers.

@paullaus3: Congrats to former teammate Pavel Bure on entering #HHOF @FlaPanthers

Terry Rothstein: Steals the puck at center ice, breakaway, shoots, SCORES!!!!!!!

Elliot Weinthal: Grew up watching the Russian Rocket. Still have my signed jersey from meeting him at the arena. He is part of the reason why I started playing hockey.

@GFine12: Jeez, seems like yesterday I was watching Pavel Bure on the ice and now he's in the HHOF? Insane... I'm only 18! @FlaPanthers #Congrats

Brandon Bender: I get goosebumps to this day just thinking of him touching the puck. Favorite player ever. Never will forget the nite i met him and Val.

Dennis Bedard: He was fun to watch back in the day! Best Offensive Panther ever!!

@hockeychic8: Congrats to Pavel Bure "the Russian Rocket" on making the hockey HOF!
