Again, whether it's Girardi or McDonagh, Staal would not have that caliber of partner or depth on the blueline in Carolina. He would have to be the guy in a wholly different sense. You're also overlooking the differences in Torts vs. Muller's systems. I'm not saying MStaal is simply a product of a conservative D-oriented scheme, but the challenge is different in Carolina's more aggressive system.

Regardless, a Murphy + #5 pick + prospect is way too much from a Canes' perspective.
Marc Staal is the Rangers best defenseman. It's really that simple. So the fact that you want to praise Girardi and McDonagh as great players only solidifies our point as Marc is better than both.
