Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports that Marc Staal has begun increasing his off-ice workout at the Rangers practice facility, but there's still no timetable for him to resume skating or return to the line-up.
…awesome to see Staal progressing. While the Rangers would absolutely love to have Staal back in the line-up asap, they're doing the right thing by taking their time with his recovery. No need to rush a guy who's basically a year removed from severe post concussion symptoms. I'd be shocked if he made it back by the end of the regular season.
…big props to Sather for getting Moore in the Gaborik trade which gives the Rangers addition blueline depth to overcome Staal's absense.
