I rate Staal higher than MDZ, and think MDZ could fetch a good deal. But I worry a) about Staal's injury, b) about Staal leaving in 2 years, and c) about whether Carolina might not overpay to get the last piece.
I want no part of Skinner. McBain or (preferably) Murphy, Rask and the #5 pick would be fine with me.

Why we want to become less mobile when one of our biggest issues was immobility, is mindnumbing.

Can't move the puck out of our own end, or through the neutral zone.

Earth to Sather...need more mobility, not less.

To get someone really good you're going to have to move more than Ferriero and a 6th. Basically this guy may or may not make the Rangers or be back and forth between the NHL/AHL. Beyond that the Rangers have almost no experienced d-men in Hartford next year so depth is an issue within the organization.

How about signing a legit 3rd string goalie/guy pressuring Biron/can be recalled and played any time/helps the Wolf Pack and Cam Talbot?

I can't see this being the last deal with all of the fuss of DZ/Staal circling. Clark is on record saying we need to shore up PMD, so patience!!

Maybe a bubble NHL defenseman in reality. Wild blueline is that bad after Suter/Brodin. Either way, swapping a bubble F for a bubble D makes sense at least.

Ferriero never impressed me in Hartford. I see him as a career minor leaguer who only got called up because we had no depth.

Per @Russostrib saying #NYR needed to trade a contract, Falk for 6th-rd pick gave #NYR 51 on roster, so included Ferriero to get back to 50

It never hurts to have defensive depth and this guy has some size, can play a quiet mistake free 12 minutes. 24 and NHL ready. Good move why not

As far as building depth is concerned, there is no better way to do this than trading away multiple pieces that will never get out of the AHL for a single serviceable depth player. Always good. Gaborik for great pick ups in Moore, Dorse, Brass in a 1 for 3 and now a good 2 for 1.

I really hope not. I don't think there's room for another small, soft player in the top lines here. Unless they have absolutely unbelievable skill, those types of teams don't do well in the playoffs.

If this move guarantees we won't see Gilroy or Bickel playing the 6th d-man spot at anytime this season I am all for it. Personally I liked Emminger as he filled in admirably after we lost Staal, but he wasn't a 3-4 d-man and once Stralman was hurt he was playing too many minutes. I wonder if he will end up in Vancouver.

Deal was Falk for 6th. Ferriero was a throw in to get under the 50 contracts limit.

Not really sure this is a Pack move. Falk is a decent bottom pairing guy.

Quite a bit better player. Not sure I get the comparison. Are you sure you've seen Falk play?

Not really. Plus it remains to be seen if he is actually going to be the 7 or if we make another move or two.
