The Rangers Tribune:
According to the Rangers, Marc Staal, Wojtek Wolski and Mike Rupp -- all currently on injured reserve -- have made the trip to Florida with the team. For Staal, this is the first trip he has made since being sidelined, and the same goes for Wolski and Rupp, but they have obviously been kept home due to surgery.
The Rangers haven't made any other statements on these players, so I'm thinking the only reason they made the trip is so that they can continue to practice with the team, or in Staal's case, workout with the team.
I don't want to look too far into this news, but it's good to hear at the very least. I think, in one way or another, each player serves a purpose that the Blueshirts are missing right now, despite their recent success. This especially applies to Marc Staal, who is a top three player on this team.

Having an outstanding beginning to his professional career, Carl Hagelin is becoming an offensive weapon for the CT Whale in the AHL. With Hagelin contributing in every way imaginable, the question of whether he breaks the Rangers roster this year deserves to be raised.
With 12 points (7 goals) in 16 games and an outstanding +10 already, Hagelin is thriving on the ice. He’s...
CTWhale.com reports that Carl Hagelin scored the shootout winner as the Whale defeated the Providence Bruins 3-2 in a shootout yesterday.Brendan Bell and Jordan Owens scored third period goals to help the Whale recover from a 2-0 deficeit.Hagelin scored in the sixth round of the shootout on the backhand....absolutely no reason EC should be on the Rangers ahead of Hagelin right now...
It is a bit of a slow day here in Rangerland, but there were some tidbits of information from practice to chat about, courtesy of Andrew Gross.
First, Brandon Dubinsky and Brad Richards sat out of practice today. As per Gross, Dubinsky was sick and Richards required a maintenance day. These are common occurence, and shouldn’t really be a cause for alarm. Hockey players need days...
No one expected the Rangers to win-out the rest of the season. That’s just a silly thought. But during their seven-game winning streak, which was snapped when they put up a clunker against the Montreal Canadiens, the Rangers showed signs of regaining the form that has made them succeed in the past. When their streak [...]
You have to be slightly concerned. Not on the scale of the typical jump-off-the-bridge Ranger fan, no, but you should still be slightly worried about what unfolded tonight, coupled with the game against the Habs, and what has been going on for much of the season.
The troubling thing is NOT the lack of shots. I’ve never bought into that being a huge issue. It’s a little concerning...

The New York Rangers didn’t find the sense of urgency they
needed following their 4-0 loss Saturday and it cost them again as they fell
2-1 in Florida Wednesday night. The lack
of offense was obvious, but the Rangers are back to the utter lack of energy
and effort that was plaguing them to start the season as well. If that does not change quickly, then the
