Only topped by the rangers/pens ot win a few years later... the game with 7-0 power plays. Staal, Cally, Dubi combo dies it shorthanded and wins in extra time.

Staal played in a charity golf game yesterday, gave no updates on his eye, but is playing golf a good sign maybe?

How was his short game? Did it look like his depth perception was impaired?

Couldn't be any worse than me at the range today.

Although it could be telling to see how he played.

The biggest problem with Staal is the he is out so darn long each time he is injured. A year is a really longtime for a concussion (or more like a series of concussions (the Eric hit; then he got that high stick etc)). He has yet to come back from his eye injury.

It remains to be seen how he will pan out. I am not saying that he has missed a game more than he should, but I can only note that when it comes to him and the team is in dire need for a speedy recovery, we get the opposite...

I'll say one thing. Rangers fans are blind (sure, i'll intend that pun) if they don't admit theres some concern about Staal. He played one game in the playoffs and then dissapeared.

Not saying he won't be back, but I'll believe it when I see it that it won't effect his play.

It also damaged his trade value this offseason. Theres no way teams would ignore an injury like that.

I've seen people post differently.

Well, with all injuries come recovery. Half the concern is with the nature and seriousness of the injuries and the other half is with recovery. I think Marc will recover just fine. If he was slightly rushed coming back, given the extra 4 months of recovery, I think he'll be just fine.

it was dumb to bring him back PERIOD before next season. For people who are spouting "damaged goods" instead of "top 4 dman" what leg do you guys have to stand on? No one knows right?

anyway, doctors said Staal would make a full recovery.. Staal said he doesnt think he will be 100%, then again this was probably when he was going through some **** because he couldn't be apart of his team in the playoffs. I'd go with doctors over Staal's word, and just because he's not 100%, doesn't mean he won't be 90-95%, to say he's "damaged goods" is incredibly stupid. Some concerns? yes, calling him damaged goods? based on what?

I would agree that you can't call him damaged goods, but its possible that he might be..

Sorry, I'm not convinced that he'll slide right back in no problem. I hope so, though.

the same professionals that continued to clear Staal to play even after being severely concussed by a dangerous hit from his brother?

Stating I"ll believe it when I see it is not being an armchair doctor.

People assuming he'll be just fine is more of that than what I'm saying.

Can't not let him play if he doesn't report the injury to the staff in the first place.

1)Half the defense is never given a chance to develop their offensive skills since they must play the stay at home style.

2)When DZ was at his best offensively his +/- really suffered. There is still doubt about whether he can be a two way player. Right now he is an either or.

3)Think about how much teams will offer for a future Norris trophy winner? To me the Rangers are a bubble team. Trading DZ for potential offense now, might be the way to go while Lundy is at the top of his game. An improved PP is the key to the teams progress. If you dangle DZ and only receive modest offers than it's only this board who believes in DZ's potential and not the Gm's.

What"s the deal with Powe and Asham... Do they have to go through waivers again to be recalled? Likely that they would get claimed???

I'm pretty sure they got rid of reentry waivers in the new CBA.
