Staal Reports Progress With Vision

While there's next to zero chance he plays in tonight's Game 4, there was some good news on the Marc Staal injury front as he reported progress with his blurred vision and altered depth perception after practice today (via Bergen Record)…

“That week after the game I didn’t play [Game 4 against the Capitals], I had some ups and downs and I took a few days off to let things settle down. The last two days have been better so we’ll go from there. It’s worse to sit and watch than it is to deal with the eye."

…really excited to hear that there's some improvement. I'm still very concerned that he'll never regain 100% of his vision. But if he feels comfortable playing again by next fall I'm confident he can still be a very productive NHL player for the Rangers.

…and if not, I'm sure the Carolina Hurricanes will want to trade for him anyway, just to say they have all the Staal brothers on their team.
