If the Rangers are trading Staal to Carolina, then Carolina will have to be willing to part with assets that make you think twice, but assets that can be moved nonetheless.
Elias Lindholm, Phil Di Giuseppe and a 1st in 2014 stings. Yet they are adding a #2 defenceman without losing anything off their current roster.
I believe this is a deal that while it would hurt the Rangers, having the defence they have I believe it's a deal that can be withstood by the Rangers.
McDonagh - Girardi
Del Zotto - Stralman
Moore - Falk
Mobile, solid at both ends of the ice.
Staal will not be traded for scraps and 2nd/3rd line tweeners. He's got alot more value than that. However asking the Canes to part with their #1 defenceman or Skinner is not thinking of the Canes needs at all.
So how does this help us win NOW?
Lindholm is projected as the Canes' 4th line center going into next season. I've never even heard of that Phil guy, and that 1st will probably be in the 10-20 range, meaning we'll only get a solid player who can contribute in 2-3 years. In 4 years from now, Lundqvist will be 35. Which is when most goalies start declining.
There's 2 packages I would want.
Skinner + Murphy + 3rd for Staal + Pyatt (cap reasons)
Faulk + Ruutu (1/3 salary retained) for Staal
