I'm amazed how many fans are on the trade Staal bandwagon. The Rangers are going to take a hit losing Stralman. To lose Staal and Stralman would be a MAJOR hit.

With that said if a team will overpay for Staal I would consider moving him. I don't know if July is the best time to move a player like Staal. I could be wrong but I have a hunch that defensive-defenseman have more value at the deadline. I see no reason why the Rangers have to play the "sign now OR we will trade you now" card with Staal. They could wait to maximize value.
Why would we lose both?
