Either way couple of months are not enough to put a rookie everyone forgives over the solid veteran Malik is. Staal is a work in progress, obviously, but envisioning him as puck moving D (which is correct) does not make him solid stay-at-home D. At least as of yet.
I like Mark Staal. Yet I officially predict now that he will never be as good as Tyutin even once he moves to puck moving position (as he should and this is planned). He will be our #3 D and I will be very happy to see that happening.
My point here is that Staal is no way competitor to Malik. It is temporary thing that Staal forced Marek out of lineup. In fact, Malik missing a few games, besides his injury and flu, has more that anything else to do with strong Strudwick play.
Malik is here to stay. We do not have and probably will not have better stay-at-home D, unless we obtain one via trade. The trade is a possibility, but to get a premium D to replace Malik is a tough trick. If I was Sather, I wouldn't bother, its not a #1 priority. As I said we do not have anyone within the organization to replace him. Saugunetti suggestion is a joke.

I like Malik a lot more than most here but Staal is already better than him. Staal is also already better than Tyutin, which is remarkable considering their relative experience.

Staal is a legit first pairing Dman. I sincerely doubt Tyutin or any other current Rangers will ever be that unless we want to call Rosy a legit 1st pairing guy which is borderline at best.

I disagree. I wish you were right, though.

He isn't better than Tyutin yet but he will be. Should be a #2 d at least in the future.
