Original Post: John Tortorella told the media after the Rangers loss in Switzerland that Marc Staal WILL NOT join the team in Sweden this week.
Torts also said that he is not considering putting Staal on injured reserve yet.
It didn't make sense to send Marc to Europe unless he was going to play. This way he can continue to work at getting better in NY and not have to deal with any issues overseas. I don't see this as a step back with him, I just see it as part of the process that he is going through in recovering from the concussion.
