MARC STAAL RUMORS & GOSSIP

Rangers Defensive Woes Could Mean Big Bucks For Staal

The Dan Boyle injury has exposed the Rangers lack of depth on the blueline as Alain Vigneault has had a difficult time finding a competent replacement. While the Rangers lackadaisical defense has been far from amusing… …one Blueshirt who could be laughing all the way to the bank is Marc Staal. You see, every time Michael Del Kostka gives the puck away in the slot, Kevin Klein...

Mckenzie: Rangers negotiations with Staal have gone “quiet”

McKenzie “My understanding with M.Staal is that he’s negotiating a deal with NYR but it’s gone quiet of late.” — Hope_Smoke (@Hope_Smoke) October 15, 2014 On TSN radio, Bob Mckenzie mentioned that the Rangers negotiations with Marc Staal have gone quiet of late.

Brooks doesn’t understand the ‘lunacy’ of the Marc Staal contract negotiations

I hope Marc Staal’s agent, Paul Krepelka, is paying Larry Brooks well. Since March, Brooks has campaigned for the Rangers to re-sign Staal. Yet, like so many Rangers fans he hasn’t offered up a sound argument as to why the Rangers should be so desperate to offer Staal $5 to $6 million per year on a continue reading...

What to do with Marc Staal

When we last checked in on Marc Staal, he was rumored to be looking for a Dan Girardi contract, roughly $5.5 million over six years. The cost isn’t that big of a deal with a rising cap, and the term is fine by me since Staal is just 28 years old (34 when that contract would […] The post What to do with Marc Staal appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Marc Staal, Rangers could see contract talks drag

Last year, the New York Rangers let their contract negotiations with defenseman Dan Girardi drag on to the trade deadline before finally locking the veteran defenseman down. In 2014-15, they could have a similar situation on their hands with defenseman Marc Staal. The team is reportedly offering Staal the same six-year, $33 million deal they gave Girardi last year, which comes out...

Why I’m not happy about the Marc Staal contract negotiations (and why you shouldn’t be either)

Marc Staal has been a trending topic for #NYRTwitterati for at least a week now. Last Monday, I added my third piece of evidence as to why Staal should not be re-signed. Based largely on Staal’s poor WOWY (with you and without you) statistics, I concluded the following: Staal’s performance heavily relies on the quality of his teammates. continue reading...

A second Staal in New York?

Marc Staal has brothers, this is not new to you by now. Most of them as you will surely know are in Carolina and the longer Rangers defenseman Marc Staal goes without a new contract there will be the same old assumptions that he will end up in Carolina with his brethren. Recently, media reports […] The post A second Staal in New York? appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

The Rangers contract negotiations with Staal won’t end well

According to Larry Brooks, the Rangers are believed to have offered Marc Staal the same six year, $5.5 million contract they signed Dan Girardi to last season. “Offered” is bold and italicized because it is inconceivable to me that the Rangers brass could be so wrong in their talent evaluation of Staal. Staal is actually seeking over continue reading...

Staal Has Had Productive Discussions With Rangers On Extension

With the band officially back together after the re-signing of John Moore yesterday, it’s time to put our focus squarely on…next year’s free agents. The most intriguing of whom is Marc Staal. The 27-year old defenseman is going into the final year of his five-year, $19.875 million contract. When healthy, Staal is a legit top two defenseman playing on the second pair. His...
