Larry Brooks at the New York Post says that after witnessing the Staal Family Reunion in Carolina on Thursday, the Rangers should be worried — very worried — about losing Marc Staal to the Hurricanes when the defenseman become a free agent in two years.
Staal's cap hit is $3.975 million per.
…to be honest, the last thing I'm worried about right now is whether Staal stays with the Rangers in two years. I'm way more interested in his health and if he'll be a part of this year's playoff run.
…the Rangers have been able to get by without Staal so far, but I think they're really going to miss his ability to battle against Ovechkin in their first round match-up.
