I'm not saying Staal is a problem or a solution. I'm saying that the Rangers could trade Staal for offense which puts less pressure on the defense and that Vezina goalie we have back there protecting them

Like those Kings did.
What's so hard about this? Staal's absence early in the season had a negative effect on the D in the latter part of the season and in the playoffs.
