Let's remember:

Rangers only consider this to get cap space, and are thin on righty, and
Canes only consider this to add lefty, but mostly for $$$. Staal as a novelty of bros is worth some extra $$$.

So may be this is not the best deal.
Maybe it is worth doing.

Let's review with an open mind and see if there are possibilities to be exhausted.
No, it's not the best deal and the whole Staal brother novelty argument is silly. Jordan's arrival barely was a ripple for a team that's much more focused on getting back to the playoffs vs. getting the band of brothers back together.

Faulk is not far off from Staal in overall on-ice performance. Add in the injury question and the fact that Staal's addition adds $3M to the cap hit, and there's really nothing to talk about. Really.
