You bring up good points, Forechecker...
although Bure's knees have been proven to not be medically fit to play hockey. Several injuries and a couple surgeries have done him in. And Bure has, in the past, worked extremely hard to come back. He tried it with the Rangers, and heck, in '94, he was spending time in the hyperbolic chamber to help him along.
As for Dunham and his groin flare-ups...well, it seemed as though his groin flared up mostly when he was working more and more. I think there's something to that. Heck, Richter had groin problems from time-to-time. It's inevitable as a Ranger goalie as you're way too active as a result of the team in front of you.
And as for Kaspar...the original date for him to return was at the end of March. The guy would be ready to go, but there's no sense. He has a desire to return, but it's better for him to continue to strengthen the leg for another month, since he now has that luxury, and then start playing in the World's, which he plans to attend if asked. So I don't see a lack of desire there.
And as for Jags...there may be something to what's being said. He has a groin problem, but depending on the team's circumstances, he likely decides if he will play or not play.
