Also, as Brooks pointed out, the Rangers could have placed Staal on IR for the time being and kept Weise a little longer. It might not have changed anything, but why release a guy before you have to?
i need to see the video again, because i dont recall him laying out Larsson....

hes played in 10 games and looked pretty craptastic in those 10 games. hes also come to camp how many times? and has never stood out. i dont get how anyone can be upset over this...frankly, its probably better for the organization, better leveraged minutes for Bourque and Hagelin in Connecticut.
