Yes but it wasnt that bad. The prior 2 seasons before Bure was a Ranger he played 74 games and 82 games. In the 5 total seasons before he was a Ranger only one of those seasons he was on the injured list for pretty much the whole year the other 4 he played 82, 74, 63, 82 games. Its not like he was getting hurt every few months like when he was a Ranger.

I would do the trade all over again for IMO the best natural scorer in the league game then.
