Barnaby has never won a Stanley Cup. He got back into the playoffs for the first time since 2000 and like Simon showed that he could help a good team become better. He certainly sounded committed to re-signing with the Rangers when he was first traded--and I would welcome him back if he was crazy enough to sign on again--but, there may very well be competition and they may very well be able to offer him a better situation than coming back here.
