He's the newest member of the New York Rangers--and one of the most exciting players in professional hockey, with outstanding speed and skill. In his first season with the NHL, Pavel Bure won the Calder Memorial Trophy as top rookie. Eight years after his debut, the man known as the "Russian Rocket" racked up two 60-goal season and two 100-plus point years, despite absences caused by injuries and contract disputes. Now, an award-winning journalist delves into the mysteries of Bure's life, including allegations of involvement with the Russian Mafia; his troubled relationship with his father; the feuds with the media and with the Canucks' management; and his ambivalent attitude towards his intensely adoring fans.
