Buzz: Marc Staal Was Supposed To Start Skating

In the NY Post, Larry Brooks says that the Rangers had planned to announce that Marc Staal was to begin skating.

He says that the silence surrounding the situation isn’t encouraging:

Listen, maybe next week there will be good news on Staal. Maybe the week after or the week after that. Maybe the Rangers won’t have to move anyone.

But maybe not. Maybe Staal won’t be able to play this year.

We sure don’t know. The Rangers don’t either. This is one case where no news is not good news, not good news at all.

On Tuesday night Joe said on the broadcast that the team was possibly gonna give an update on Staal on Wednesday.

Brooks thinks that the Rangers should call Nashville to inquire about Ryan Suter.

this is a tough situation. I didn’t think that Joe would bring up the possibility of an update on Staal if it wasn’t good news and it sounds like it would have been. All we can do is wait. It seems like he had made some progress but maybe had a setback. Whatever the case, whether its a team announcement or in the paper, I would expect something on Staal soon.
