The other Staal brother in the NHL, the Rangers' Marc, would have loved to join forces with Jordan, as well, and Rangers general manager Glen Sather made inquiries with Penguins GM Ray Shero. But a source indicated that the Penguins would not even consider trading Jordan Staal within the division, so the conversation didn't go far.
Why do I feel like we struck out today? I mean I don't mind the pick... I don't know. Maybe I'm just disappointed we didn't make a splash. I just had higher expectations for today. A trade up to draft a sliding forward (there were a lot of those!) would have been great. I know we probably weren't in the hunt but I really wanted Ribiero. I'm also really pissed about the J. Staal trade, not because he didn't come here, but because friggin' Suter is a Penguin now. Great. And not that this should matter, but I'm irked that the Penguins picked Matteu... It's mostly just because I feel bad for him and his dad especially.
I don't know if I blame slats for Making Nash top priority. Depending on price and talent alone he's better than Ryan
why cause the Pens replaced Staal with Sutter on their current roster? I fail to see how this makes them better guys? If anything its a good hockey trade and they are about the same for next yr. I do like Sutter as a 3rd line C
They just dealt a good Dman to clear salary..........how about we wait on see how they do in Free Agency or in other moves?
I mean really why do the Rangers panic right now? Talk to the Ducks about Ryan and look to get that deal done. Screw Nash , the asking price is stupid
