They're a better team than their record shows, they just had an awful year in terms of injuries. They would have more use for Staal than they would a drafted player who probably won't join the lineup for 2-3 years.
McBain and that 1st rounder isn't going to cut it though. I'd take McBain as a "third piece" but not as a key component. Not really interested in Skinner. Huge deal about to kick in and the concussions seem to have set him back quite a bit. Not enamored with their prospect pool either.
This is my thoughts as well. Be pre-emptive. If you can get him at 150% of his value now as opposed to 50% then it makes sense IF they get the sense he would sign there.
1st + McBain + something else. Maybe flip that something else in a package to move up a few spots. Overpayment. Blow us away.
I personally think the Rangers can sign him again. I think Marc is actually different than his brothers. Different personality. Team leader here. Gets a ton of ice time. New York city. Big market team with a big market budget. Henrik.
