Heard the same thing about Gaborik, he is not worth 3 assets. Has a huge cap hit, Rangers have to take a cap dump in return, or UFA or some crap like that.
Rangers ended up with 2 young premium assets in Brassard and Moore, a supposedly excellent character guy in Dorsett.
1 - Sather is no fool.
2 - Staal is an elite shutdown Dman on a sweet heart deal for 2 more years.
3 - He wears a letter and is part of the core.
I doubt Staal will ever ask to be traded, but if for some reason Sather decides to trade him, it'd require a premium return.
First + Faulk + Tlusty is not an overpayment.

Faulk is nice but will he realize his potential?
I seem to recall that McBain at a certain point held the same or higher value than Faulk. Most would agree that he doesn't anymore.
Tlusty is nice, but he is shooting 19.7%, who seriously thinks he can sustain it? I don't.
