I'd Staal over Ryan and Nash. But I just don't see it happening. PIT would never deal him to us. And I don't think he'd make it to free agency because he'd be dealt to carolina and re-sign there.

The Rangers want to make a move now.

And I know i'm not the only thinking that if we got jordan it would just mean the eventual addition of eric.

Certainly wouldn't mind seeing that.

Agreed. Having Girardi, Staal and McD is a huge, huge advantage that this team has over others. I have no idea why people want to deal one of them. Yeah, the team needs more offense, but not at the expense of the three guys who make the defense what it is.

Have confirmed Bob McKenzie's report. Staal did turn down a 10-year offer from the Penguins. Might mean he still wants to keep options open

Maybe Jordan wants to test free agency.

I think the fact that we can give him a shot at the cup might help us.

Milbury acquired the pieces to build a great team (Luongo, Chara, Redden, Spezza, etc.), but turned it into **** through one abortion of a trade after another.

Howson acquired **** and it stayed ****.

Definitely...go to a team in Carolina where his brother is already the #1 center, on a team that finished out of the playoffs, or go to a team where he'd be able to become the #1 center, for a potential Cup contender...I can see how Carolina would look more attractive.

Let's sign Jordan and then get Eric when he's older so the Staal prophecy can finally take effect and lead us to the promised land.

if staal gets to FA he will be overpaid but at least he will be a 24 year old UFA and not a 29-32 year old UFA on the downside of a career.


would staal be the youngest UFA that had already played in the NHL under this CBA? 24 seems crazy young to be UFA.

Its not like Jordan would play on the same line as Eric.

Jordan easily becomes the #2 man here (just like he would in carolina) but here he has a very good chance to become the #1. He is a great PKer, good size, would fit in perfectly here.

maybe sign some stop gaps, and than sign Staal next year? turning down a 10 year deal, it's clear he wants to test FA.

Guess the guy should just hand over his franchise player for nothing.

This is a seminal moment for Columbus as a franchise - if you were in his shoes, would you not be trying to get as much as humanly possible for Rick Nash.

Thats a ridiculous thing to say

With Jordan Staal wanting to test free agency and Getzlaf and Perry potentially becoming UFA's too. Rangers might be better off waiting a year to add a big piece.

Just try to add depth this offseason. Sign Ray Whitney to a 1 year deal. Try to get Schultz and maybe another forward or defensemen.

Never said that but its not like he's been offered "nothing.". His star player wants out because his GM has done a terrible job of bringing players in to surround him and be competitive. So no its not ridiculous to say. I feel no sympathy for Howson. He wants the Nash trade to make up for years of mistakes; having the acquiring team look like Columbus in the end.
