Really don't like reading too much into stuff like this, but I have a feeling this news will only be good.

There is/will be no news today regarding Staal, per NYR. Do not draw any inferences from this.

If they were planning on giving us a positive update, no news is not good.

If they were planning on giving us a negative update, no news is good.

No news. Makes me wonder if he was feeling a lot better and they were hoping to get him cleared by a doctor, but the doctor found a reason to not clear him yet

I was thinking the same thing...like they were possibly going to announce he was cleared to skate, but then he had some symptoms or something like that so we're back to waiting. Hopefully he gets some good news soon.

This team needs more production from the 2nd line right now more than they need Staal...Might be time to reconsider the lines a tad to shake things up...

Stepan - Richards - Gabby

Feds - Boyle - Callahan

Dubi - Anisimov - Prust

etc....

Second line is currently the 4th ... Zero offense, not even a threat...

After signals had been sent early this week the club was preparing to announce the alternate captain would begin skating following a series of exams and treatments that included a cortisone injection in his neck on Sept. 26 and repeated acupuncture beginning the week of Oct. 10, a cone of silence has been dropped over the situation.
http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/range...Lxv7lBrEmgHbbI

Brooks goes on to speculate that the Rangers should consider trading with Nashville for Ryan Suter (or Weber).

Quote:
There would, however, be a significant price in personnel to pay for Suter, not to mention Weber (for whom the Rangers would have to move at least one significant contract the other way), not to mention any NHL upper-echelon defenseman.

General manager Glen Sather and his personnel people, including assistant GMs Jim Schoenfeld and Jeff Gorton and coach John Tortorella, will have to weigh whether it is necessary to move young blue chippers--the Predators would obviously inquire about Del Zotto, Artem Anisimov, Brandon Dubinsky, Chris Kreider and Dylan McIlrath, presuming Erixon and Ryan Callahan are off limits)--to fill an immediate need on defense.

Listen, maybe next week there will be good news on Staal. Maybe the week after or the week after that. Maybe the Rangers wont have to move anyone.

But maybe not. Maybe Staal wont be able to play this year.

We sure dont know. The Rangers dont either. This is one case where no news is not good news, not good news at all.

Brooks should frequent these boards more often. His panic doom & gloom scenario analysis would be heartily welcomed...

We don't have to go as far as trading for Suter or Weber.

Toronto has a glut of defensemen that could fill a top four role. And they want some of their younger guys in the lineup.

Franson would be a great pickup.

His only real flaw is that he's on the slow side.

But he could/would slot right into the core here. And create some quality depth when/if Staal returns.

Brooks is an idiot. Let's wait till we hear something.

I will be shocked if Staal is not back at some point so hold the fort til he is and hope guys step up. McD and Girardi have. Sauer is close to coming back

I also agree if they make a move for a Dman I would want an offensive one and not for a kings ransom. Someone on the back end they can take a chance on.

Franson put up 29 points +10 for Nashville last year, while logging about 15+ minutes ATOI.

He would be a great fit, IMO. And wouldn't cost a ransom.

Wolski/Zuccarello/Christensen + 2nd/3rd rd pick + second tier prospect.

Something the Rangers should seriously consider.

And free up some cap space so at the deadline we can go after a guy like Doan for a playoff run.

Franson has not looked good in Toronto thus far from what I've seen. Not sure what's going on with him, but the argument many Nashville fans made when he was traded, that he had been sheltered on the third pairing in Nashville, seems plausible. I certainly wouldn't mind him on our third pair and second PP unit, if we realize we may need to shelter his even strength minutes, but I would not look at him as any type of savior.

Franson has looked worse in Toronto than he did last year in Nashville. I would give a player like Christensen for him but not too much more. Maybe its just him playing in front of Reimer and not Rinne but he has looked below average. I would be okay with Woywitka and Eminger for now.

I think when Sauer comes back we'll get noticeably better on D, but right now I'm actually liking Woywitka and I say we make Eminger a healthy scratch IMO
