The doctors have told him that he wont be able to play this year. However, if over the course of the season his knee starts to feel a little better, and if the Rangers were to make the playoffs, I wouldnt be surprised to see him give it a try.

So what? he can play another month before having one of them give out again?

As it is, he is probably going to have problems for the rest of his life.....

The man should retire and be thankful he can still walk without a cane.

Id love to see him play again. He is the ultimate sniper. If he's confident in his knees then God bless him, lets see him on the ice. If not I hope he leads a happy life with a hot young russian chick.

The team needs stability. A return of Bure brings a return of line juggling and the attempt to teach Renney's system to another guy and then to enforce it on a player who has no interest in systems-based hockey. (Provided the system actually remains in place until Spring.) If he's actually incorporated into the team, everything gets shot to hell and back when he gets injured again.

Bure was a brilliant, brilliant offensive player, but his retirement is best for him and the Rangers.

I don't see Pavel playing again. His game is based on his skating: acceleration, lateral movement, going at top speed, and you need good knees for that. I don't think he'd want to play if he couldn't play his game. And having had knee surgery, I know the knee can only take so much before you have to adapt to a new reality.

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.
