Definitely. The Rangers need help pretty much everywhere but goalie. However, as I said previously, I don't support breaking the bank for a guy that may not fit in the system. Staal can be a great #1 defenseman one day, but he is not quite there yet. If you are looking at the Devils defense as a model, name one guy that can be a passable #1 d-man on any other team. I'm not knocking the Devils, but the answer is no one, unless you are very high on Paul Martin. You don't necessarily have to be stacked on the defensive corps to play a very good defensive game.

But I digress and I'm way off topic, we'll have to wait on Jagr's decision in the coming week before I can say anything else.
