2/24/16 | 6:09PM: Elliotte Friedman said on a USA Today podcast, "I see the Rangers as the obvious team. His brother is there, they could use a player like him. Eric Staal, if they get him, probably solves a lot of their problems. It's so hard to win now. I think you take your chances when you can.
3:40PM: Bob McKenzie wonders if the Rangers have an advantage with Staal because they can present him with an opportunity to play with Marc.
McKenzie also wonders about the idea of Staal not being a rental for the Rangers, "what if his Brotherly Love cap hit-discount, in a place like New York, was deep enough for the Rangers to consider him a longer-term option and not just a one-and-done rental?" (TSN)
