So imo Stoll who is amoungest the top 5 3rd line centers in the league. He has 2nd line center ability if needed. Hes still one of the best faceoff percentages in the league all this makes him worth the money hes paid.

Greene is a vetern with tons of locker room leadership I even doubt hes in play to be traded. Imo Suderi would be traded before greene. Ranger need to remember we aquired them for a at the time a better defenseman named Lubomir Visnovsky. Adding Martinez is way to much. I would consider a greene stoll for staal but not adding another roster piece at all.
Staal played the entire second half of the season and a grueling, physical playoffs without incident. Not sure how much more you are looking for in terms of health.

Staal is a solid top pair defenseman on most teams in the league signed long term at a very reasonable rate. Teams will have to do a lot better to pry Staal away than whats been offered here.
