I could see the Rangers entertaining trading Marc Staal to Carolina:

1. They already have a couple of shutdown studs in Giraldi and McDonagh; and the team proved for much of last season while Staal was out that they can win without him.

2. They need a PP QB and more depth on D as their top 4 were overworked in the playoffs. If Carolina really wants Staal, i could see them willing to offer Justin Faulk + Ryan Murphy which I think will appeal to the Rangers.

3. Rangers are a serious suitor for Rick Nash and trading Staal for a couple of promising D will save a lot of cap space to make the Nash deal work.
