It's just not at all easy to replace a #1 defenseman. You can't just draft that every year or sign it in UFA like it's no big deal. His type of ability, especially in his own end, just doesn't come along often.
I don't think you approach this situation expecting to "replace" Staal. I want the Rangers to be proactive, much like the Pens were with Jordan.
