I mean since their time in the NHL has Tlusty really done that much more then Benoit Pouliot? Cause the Rangers just signed Pouliout for 1.3m and didn't give up anything close to Staal to get him because they didn't give up anything at all.

Pouliot - 26y/o, 291 games, 61g, 63a, 201PIM, 13.5 s%, 12:31 ATOI, 324 hits
Tlusty - 25y/o, 276 games, 57g, 55a, 112PIM, 13.77 s%, 13:20 ATOI, 187hits

I'm sorry but last season wasn't a full season and if a small sample size is adequate enough to determine a players value, which I'm not saying it is, then Mats Zuccarello should be in the Rangers top6 before Juri Tlusty.

If someone wants Staal, then they're going to have to pay the price it takes to get one, just like Jordan Staal cost. Which means the OP proposal except swap out Tlusty for Faulk.
Tlusty scored 23 goals in 48 games last year. Way more value than Pouliot.
