This deal is a win for the Rangers if Staal continues to improve and becomes a top 20 dman in this league, but if he stays where he is at it is a bit of a net loss.
Staal is a much more well-rounded d-man than Volchenkov is. Also, Staal is just starting to tap into his offensive potential. IMO, 4.5M per for 6 would be a fine deal.
