It could be a number of things.

1. He is 31, and while that isn't set for a full fledged decline, often it knocks off some goals from yearly numbers of goal scorers. I don't think people feel Bossy would have hit 1000 goals in his career.

2. He is coming off surgery and looks tentative.

3. He is plying an unfamiliar wing and seems to really be in a funk about that whole situation.

4. My impression was, when he signed with us after a year of Drury, Naslund, and Zherdev as our top line that he wanted to be "the guy" offensively in every situation. Like it or not, he is now in a Malkin situation to Crosby's Nash. (They should start a band)

Ultimately, what it boils down to is do you have a trade that can make the rangers better this and next year, and if the answer is no then we should simply keep him.
