This whole conversation comes from the idea that the Rangers had scouts to SOLELY look at Roberts. Knowing the Rangers had interest in Salei in the off-season, and considering BOTH Ward and Malik would be in their final years next year, and the possibility that Staal might get a year in Hartford to adjust to the professional game defensively, acquriring Salei MIGHT give the Rangers an immediate upgrade on D, and, insurance going forward.
