Darren Dreger said this morning on TSN 1050, "Are the Rangers in bringing him back, I think automatically you say yes, just based on his leadership and experience. He still has lots of hockey left in him though we didn’t see much of that in the playoffs as Alain Vigneault and the Rangers and St. Louis would like. He is a performer and he would admit that he didn’t perform up to his standards offensively this season. I wonder though, if he wants to stay I think he will have to take a considerable hair cut. You look at what Brad Richards has done, he leaves the Rangers and signs with the Blackhawks to fill a hole in their lineup but anyone who has watched Richards, he looks invigorated. He looks like he is accepting of his added responsibility but he is doing it at what, $1 million? He wanted the opportunity to win the Cup again and perhaps St. Louis will do something similar but he will have options.”

"You always, as you get older, you think about the following year and for me right now, of course I want to play but I am not direction which this team is going either so it's tough to comment. I have been blessed to play parts of two years here, for a great organization and we will see where that takes me. To play for the Cup last year and be one win away this year, it's an experience i will never forget." (MSG)
