He only played LW or center with the Rangers.

He got paired with Gaborik a lot in his time with the Rangers because they had pretty good chemistry, but probably got moved around a bit too, I don't quite remember other than he was usually playing on the top line, or at least in the top six

I hope this doesn't signal the end of dealing.
Well the one good thing is that he did come back and play at the end of the year and in the playoffs for the Rangers and did well, so it's not like he was injured all year and hasn't played since. But like I said, i think there's some concern the knee might not hold up too well
