Again, you are all upgrading a spot that doesn't need an upgrade. Our top 4 are set. We need scoring and a 3rd pair. Staal, Girardi and McD are a financial bargain and effective so long as they aren't playing prohibitive minutes. Weber isn't a solution and twice Staal's price.
It's absolutely senseless for the Rangers to dedicate an extra $4m in cap to fix something that isn't broken. Assets and cap space should be spent on some scoring, re-signing Stralman and MDZ, and locking down one more RD that can eat minutes and hopefully move the puck up ice. Weber for Staal doesn't reduce minutes for the defensemen.
All the talk is "Staal for Weber, Staal for Weber" That's the starting point, who else is included. Not our garbage like Dubinsky. Not Thomas. Kreider, Stepan, Hagelin, MDZ, Miller, McIlrath... some of the so-called untouchable names. The cheap entry level replacements that help offset Weber level contracts.
I'm just thankful that the organization isn't wasting time and energy trying to fix things like the top 4.
