He's had less playoff points than Girardi the past 2 playoffs, yet everyone is basically fine with him moving. He is a player who takes no accountability for his team and his own piss poor play and I don't want him around the younger players on the team. Why is Ryan Callahan an untouchable on this team exactly?
Jaskin is a very big, skilled LWer who had the highest PPG in the CHL. He is only 19 years old and got cup of coffee with the Blues early this season. He was so good, they didn't both sending him straight to the AHL, but rather right away with the NHL club. He is a very realistic target the Rangers should be after and Callahan is a good fit for the Blues.
As for Staal, I think we could get the 6th overall pick this year, although with his recent injury history, I doubt he holds much value at this point.
It doesn't matter if he's overrated by the fans what matters is if he is good enough I said he is a damn good player not a very good damn player because he is not a very good player but he is good and a good leader and a cog that can help this team win. As I said if you get something for him great so I'm obviously not saying he is untouchable. I am disappointed with him this year I'll admit to that for sure. But not so disappointed that I actively think he needs to be traded.
That said sometimes you have to predict when a player is going to fall off if you want your organization to be more than a joke (aka more than the rangers) If you think he is primed to fall off a cliff and we are in a prime spot to trade him than I understand that b/c it happens to every player ever.
