well, if Staal's situation is any indication, then yeah the Rangers can just assign him to Hartford and he doesn't need to sign an ATO or anything. Though when the Rangers signed Greg Moore at the end of his season last year, the Pack still had to sign him to an ATO in order to play him. However, that could be because the contract he signed with the Rangers didn't take immediate effect, and so he also needed the ATO to play for Hartford. Staal had already signed the year before, so that wasn't an issue
