MARC STAAL RUMORS & GOSSIP

Bizarre trade between Canucks and Panthers offer Rangers hope

Apparently, Dan Girardi and Marc Staal are so bad (p.s. they’re not) that they are untradeable unless the Rangers do something ridiculous like take back Bobby Holik and Scott Gomez’s Ranger contracts. Well, the rather perplexing trade between the Canucks and Panthers this week has taught us two things that should excite the Rangers and […] The post Bizarre trade between Canucks...

Do the Rangers need to explore buying out Dan Girardi or Marc Staal?

The biggest topic of this offseason will be how the Rangers address their precarious cap situation. With minimal cap space and several key free agents to sign, the Rangers are in a tough spot. The club has some rookies ready to take the next step, but it isn’t enough to fill out a lineup. Nor is […] The post Do the Rangers need to explore buying out Dan Girardi or Marc Staal...

Should the New York Rangers sign Marc Staal?

After a rough 1-3 start to the season, the New York Rangers have bounced back with two straight victories, in which they outscored opponents 6-1. However, despite the apparent return to form of Henrik Lundqvist and the improved play of the defense, the first six games have compounded a dilemma that has been bothering upper management for months: Should the Rangers resign Marc Staal...

Why I’m not happy about the Marc Staal contract negotiations (and why you shouldn’t be either)

Marc Staal has been a trending topic for #NYRTwitterati for at least a week now. Last Monday, I added my third piece of evidence as to why Staal should not be re-signed. Based largely on Staal’s poor WOWY (with you and without you) statistics, I concluded the following: Staal’s performance heavily relies on the quality of his teammates. continue reading...

A second Staal in New York?

Marc Staal has brothers, this is not new to you by now. Most of them as you will surely know are in Carolina and the longer Rangers defenseman Marc Staal goes without a new contract there will be the same old assumptions that he will end up in Carolina with his brethren. Recently, media reports […] The post A second Staal in New York? appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

The Rangers contract negotiations with Staal won’t end well

According to Larry Brooks, the Rangers are believed to have offered Marc Staal the same six year, $5.5 million contract they signed Dan Girardi to last season. “Offered” is bold and italicized because it is inconceivable to me that the Rangers brass could be so wrong in their talent evaluation of Staal. Staal is actually seeking over continue reading...

Marc Staal is not the defenseman Rangers fans think he is

At first glance, Marc Staal looks like he had a pretty solid season last year. Staal and his defensive partner Anton Stralman created a formidable second pair that played a key role in the Rangers march to the Stanley Cup Final. Staal posted a CF% relative to his teammates during 5 on 5 of 3.29%, continue reading...

The Rangers dilemma with Marc Staal accelerates

Marc Staal is one year away from unrestricted free agency and the Rangers may have already missed their best opportunity to solve the dilemma. According to Larry Brooks, Staal may be seeking a multi year deal worth $5.5M per, which is entirely too much for the Rangers-bred defenseman. If Staal really is seeking the same six year, $30M contract that the Rangers gave Dan Girardi...

Musings: What’s next? What is the ideal situation to trade Marc Staal?

Happy Almost-Three-Day-Weekend folks. A lot has gone on in Rangerland over the past few days, so let’s get to the musings. The Rangers have $14.6 million in cap space to fill six forward spots and one defense spot. If you allocate about $12 million to Derick Brassard ($4 million), Mats Zuccarello ($4.5 million) , Chris […] The post Musings: What’s next? What is the ideal situation...

The last stretch of the NHL regular season is starting in just over twenty-four hours and the injured news seems to keep getting tougher. The New York Rangers have reported that Marc Staal is out with a lower body injury. Staal has been sidelined for the last three practices due to back spasms.
