That may be true but he is a big guy and he played average in the preseason games before the season. I would think that his game has improved since then and he has gotten a little bigger. Marc has all the tools to step in right now. Depending on how fast his junior season ends, the more games he would be able to get in before the playoffs start for the Rangers. Staal could bring much needed offense and size to the blueline. He is ready to step up and take his shot. The Rangers need him more than Hartford does plus again I'd rather let him step in because I think he's ready than to trade prospects/picks for another defenseman.
