Last night on MSG, Dave Maloney said that it was his understanding that Marc Staal couldn’t “do anything” for the next couple of weeks.

One week ago tonight, Staal made his first public appearance since taking a puck in the eye.

His brothers said last Monday that there was no timetable for Marc to return but that he was doing better.

Last week on MSG, after seeing him, John Tortorella told Sam Rosen, “He looks great. He was around the locker room. We miss the hell out of him as a person. First and foremost we are glad that everything is going well.”

On the latest edition of Behind The Bench, Tortorella said “Talking to him he can’t stand being inactive, that is what is killing him. He will come back and be a big piece of this, but I’m not sure when. We want to make sure there are no problems with him physically because that is the most important thing, his well being. Then we will see where we go with him as a player.”
