Brooks wrote Staal has been symptom free for at least 5 weeks. When Staal went to Dr.Cantu in October,the Rangers thought Staal would be cleared to resume light workouts but Cantu shut him down for one month. Staal saw Cantu 6 weeks ago for the first time.
The examination, sources have told The Post, will follow a one-month “shutdown” period ordered by Cantu when Staal visited him during the week of Oct. 16 while the Rangers were in western Canada.
The Rangers at that point were optimistic Staal, who had previously undergone repeated acupuncture in Toronto and had received a cortisone shot in the neck from physicians at the University of Buffalo on Sept. 26 as treatment for the intermittent headaches he had been experiencing since at least late summer, would be cleared to resume skating after being off the ice for a couple of weeks.
Staal must have been feeling better before seeing Cantu in mid October for the Rangers to have thought Staal would've been cleared to begin the process of returning to Staal but he was shut down.
