Will Staal's eyesight be ok to play? And what about Strahlman now? Is he concussed or did he break his nose/orbital bone?

They need to sign D over the summer and maybe not a name one. Sometimes a younger one like Drewiske, Sulzer, Fistric can be molded into a serviceable or good product in the system. Someone who unlike Gilroy or Hamrlik you actually don't wince when they have to play a few games. Emminger's done a very good job over the last few years.

I'm still all about giving Babchuk a shot. I just don't know if his heart is in North America after his comments that he expects to play in the KHL.

Don't assume McLIrath will be instantly ready or that Noureau or Hughes can just step in.
They need to make a smart signing. They need both grit and intimidation and a true puck mover on the back end. Murray has played pretty well for Pittsburgh. Very big guy who enjoys initiating contact. He battles hard, hits hard, good PKer. He would fit well in NY with this team. Pair him with a speedster like Moore.

They need to sign someone. Their young dmen have a lot of value and they need scoring.
