MARC STAAL RUMORS & GOSSIP

The odd career arc of Marc Staal

Marc Staal has been a polarizing player for the New York Rangers this year. A pending free agent with a $3.975 cap hit, the Rangers are facing a critical decision involving another core piece –their third decision to make in two years. On one side of the coin, the Rangers can re-sign Staal, who is […] The post The odd career arc of Marc Staal appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

The Rangers’ Marc Staal dilemma

It’s amazing the difference one dominant performance can make. Prior to the Pens game I was ready to criticise Marc Staal pretty heavily, and all of a sudden he turns out his best performance of the year. However, the point of this post remains. For now. This year, on a consistent basis, the Rangers have […] The post The Rangers’ Marc Staal dilemma appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

The Penguins Apparently Have a Bone to Pick With Marc Staal

Remember this? There are some in the Pittsburgh camp who actually believe that the lack of retaliation from the way Staal manhandled Crosby directly contributed to the Penguins blowing a 3-1 series lead to the Rangers in the Eastern Conference Semis last May. This is obviously blatantly ignoring that the return of Kreider from a hand injury in Game 4 on the ice and how the Rangers...

Here is Marc Staal being bad at hockey, with pictures!

I’ve written at length about Marc Staal being a bad, or at best, mediocre defenseman. The latest from Larry Brooks is that the Rangers are believed to have offered Staal the same six year, $32.5 million anvil contract that they gave to Dan Girardi. Staal is believed to be seeking at least $6 million per. For continue reading...

Should the New York Rangers sign Marc Staal?

After a rough 1-3 start to the season, the New York Rangers have bounced back with two straight victories, in which they outscored opponents 6-1. However, despite the apparent return to form of Henrik Lundqvist and the improved play of the defense, the first six games have compounded a dilemma that has been bothering upper management for months: Should the Rangers resign Marc Staal...

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...

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 dilemma with Marc Staal accelerates

Marc Staal is one year away from unrestricted free agency and the Rangers may have already missed their best opportunity to solve the dilemma. According to Larry Brooks, Staal may be seeking a multi year deal worth $5.5M per, which is entirely too much for the Rangers-bred defenseman. If Staal really is seeking the same six year, $30M contract that the Rangers gave Dan Girardi...

Musings: What’s next? What is the ideal situation to trade Marc Staal?

Happy Almost-Three-Day-Weekend folks. A lot has gone on in Rangerland over the past few days, so let’s get to the musings. The Rangers have $14.6 million in cap space to fill six forward spots and one defense spot. If you allocate about $12 million to Derick Brassard ($4 million), Mats Zuccarello ($4.5 million) , Chris […] The post Musings: What’s next? What is the ideal situation...
