Exactly what the sens need in the top 4.

How about Puempel + 1st + Butler?

Stewart and a 1st = Rangers still pass.

Swing and a miss.

Staal, imo, is still the second most valuable player on the Rangers roster, regardless of how well McDonagh and Girardi have played. He's a bona fide #1 dmen who's game is still improving.

It would take a massive overpayment to pry him from the Rangers. The pubescent fools here that believe Staal is expendible have yet to watch playoff hockey, and ultimately don't understand how vital competent dmen are later in the year.

Well I think it's pretty fair value, but I understand your POV. A lot of Rangers fans have been clamoring for a top 6 forward, while the Blues could use a lefty d to play with Pietrangelo...

Staal wouldn't be moved for a top-6 forward.

He's a #1 dman. Top-line forward, who's young, and on a fair contract. Even then, I'd still hesitate to pull the trigger.

We're talking about a blockbuster deal here. Rangers are in 1st place. Solid goaltending, and solid defense - a good recipe for success.

Please show me any other "#1 Dman" who doesn't play any powerplay time.

Sbisa and Beauchemin are locked into our top 4 at this point, while being paired up with Fowler and Lubo. Our organization is pretty high on Sbisa, he was the major prospect in the Pronger trade, and we're going to give him the opportunities to keep pushing for more minutes.
Just a thought, but the Ducks could then flip Lubo for a nice return, and draft another OFD with their first this year and be stacked on D for a long time?
