Lisin had some nice tools but no toolbox. Or maybe Tortorella took it away from him and wouldn't give it back. He was a definition for ineffective. Personally I don't see it as a big loss.

...as for signing Staal I don't think there's an agreement in place but the Rangers can not afford to lose their best defenseman. The consensus seems to be that the Rangers have all the leverage...but I don't see it quite that way because the Rangers can not afford to lose their best defenseman and I think Staal and his advisors know exactly who their best defenseman is. If someone signs him to an offer sheet the Rangers are going to match even if it means trading players or other assets for less value. And if that happens they'll have to do it quick because there's a time limit to match. It's a bit of game of chicken.
