I'm not sure why Brooks would even suggest trading for Suter or Weber. That's not the type of reaction that a team makes when a top player is injured, that's a core-changing move that shakes up a team. And by all accounts, it seems like the Rangers are satisfied with this core going forward.

There are plenty of second and third pairing defensemen with expiring contracts at the end of the season that can probably be had without giving up a lot in return. Those are the sort of players that should be targeted in a trade if Staal is to miss an extended period of time.
