I think Rangers fans might be going a bit overboard in not giving Tlusty credit for his nice (half) season, but the general point makes complete sense. Marc Staal has spent a number of seasons in the NHL progressing to where he is now and has a proven track record. Jiri Tlusty has been a lost soul aside from a 48 game season. There have been a number of players who have had one or two seasons that were abnormal from their career trajectory. Maybe Tlusty will be one of those. Maybe not. Point is that it's not a gamble we're willing to take right now if it requires us to move arguably our best defenseman to do so.
