If I were to go back through the last two - three years of postsnand say Staal would be replaced on the depth chart by another defensmen I'd get run out of town, so yes, great example of "over inflated".
As for McD, he again was never a Ranger prospect, Montreal prospect who in my opinion will go down in history of one of the most lopsided throw-in's in the history of a salary dump based trades....
Girardi was definitely a Rangers prospect. He didn't just sign and then play lights out in the NHL immediately.
Staal had a severe concussion and missed half of the season. He is getting his game back and is already close to playing 20+ minutes a night. He is still a top-pairing defenseman.
Sauer is an example of people just wanting to throw him away because he hadn't shown anything since he was 21 and all of a sudden he is a staple in the teams top-4 because they were patient.
