Gretzky is a pretty easy one. Maybe most will just pick 99.

So lets say other than 99

I know it was through trade but for me it was Bure. I went to his first game and remember it well. We lost 3-1 against Vancouver but Bure scored our lone goal.

Sign? or acquired via trade?

Bure and Jagr are at the top of that list.

I respectfully disagree with the idea that Bure and Jagr were both past their primes WHEN they came to the Rangers. Bure was only 30 when he was traded to the Rangers, coming off two of his absolute best seasons. Jagr was 31, and agree this can be debated, but that 124 point season screamed he was still a stud.

My vote would be for Shanahan...hopefully a Cup will change my choice to Naslund down the road

Bure and Shanahan top the list for me. Although I agree that Bure and Jagr weren't past their primes, so I'll turn mine into older players coming here.

With Gretzky, I wasn't really in favor of it because I knew he was near the end and I wasn't sure how much he'd have left in the tank. In retrospect, I was wrong. I loved getting to watch the guy every game, I was in person for his last goal (the one that broke Gordie Howe's all-time NHL/WHA record) and his last game ceremony was very touching.

I wasn't crazy about the Jagr move either. I liked Carter despite his struggles and I didn't think it made much sense to put Jagr with a ragtag team like we were after the infamous deadline purge. In retrospect, Slats knew what he was doing with the lockout coming. All I got from Jagr was a guy who busted his ass for 3 seasons (as well as a couple of meaningless months at the end of 2004).

Bure was a pickup I was absolutely psyched about and I loved watching the guy before his injury.

I don't consider Bure or Jagr having been past there prime when they joined the team...

Jagr was still able to put up 120 points...thats hardly past his prime.

Shanny gets the nod for me. Although Bure and Gretz were a close second.

I agree with you in relation to Jagr..but Bure was past his prime.

Bure for me without a doubt. One of my favorite players of all time.

stop saying Bure...

if you know absolutely anything about hockey, you'd know he was nowhere NEAR "past his prime". That's absolutely absurd to suggest otherwise.

Gretzsky and Naslund are much much much more fitting candidates

really none - past prime is just that. TGO was exciting for a couple days. Shanny sounded exciting until I remembered he was my age. Lafleur and Dionne sounded nice, but they were old. I guess I'd like to remember those players as what they were [on other teams] and not how they hung on too long as a Ranger.

Bobby Carpenter.

I didn't realize he was past his prime at the time, though.
