Optimally you keep the top4 as it is now, but as you said Staal is a 1st pairing defenseman. The Rangers already have two of them signed going forward. Do you think Staal will take second pairing money just because he plays on it? They cannot afford to pay 3 1st pairing defensemen. He is starting to look like the odd man out unless they cannot get Stralman on a long term deal with a smaller cap hit.
