If Staal's expendable, then so is pretty much every player on the team.

A puck-to-the-eye is a fluke injury and shouldn't be used as a crutch for your failed argument.

The fact that you would move Staal for a pick, says a hell of a lot about your judgement. You're the type of person that would move him for crap, mainly because you think he's overrated. You don't move a player like Staal for an unknown. Only a fool would that.

Torts will not 'break' Kreider; we will break Torts, or trade Kreider IF there is some inability to get on the same page (don't think there is one if we have enough time for instruction; issue is Torts has the guy looking over his shoulder too much, thinking before he executes plays, to degree it creates delay, which is basis for the inefficient play; this Kreider can overcome w/training).
This asinine logic that's clouded your judgement is sickening. Why have so many young players flourished under Torts? Year after year, he gives the young guys an opportunity to earn a roster spot.

You're so high on Kreider that your pointing your finger at someone undeserving. Point your finger at Kreider. He hasn't proven he deserves to play here consistently. Stop the nonsense about Torts.

Not to mention he was our leading scorer on defense this year before his injury
11 points in 21 games. Staal was looking terrific offensively prior to his injury. So many people on this forum felt Staal had untapped offensive potential and what do you know, it's coming around.

Rangers don't move Staal unless it's a deal that's too good to pass up.
