Bure was a brilliant, brilliant offensive player, but his retirement is best for him and the Rangers.
Bure is most likely done, but if he was to show up at the garden and say "hey guys! im ready!," then it would be foolish not to let him in. He is probably the most prolific Goal scorer of the 90's and he's still got the talent. The question is whether or not his knees can hold up. The answer is probably No, but on the off-chance he shows up you will re-unite Rucinski-Lindros-Bure. It would be foolish not too.
