    It's pretty obvious he was motivated when he joined the Wild. After not being resigned here, I think his pride was hurt. Either way, that is not the Staal the Rangers got. That fucker.

    I think this is exactly it. The Rangers got him at a bad time. They got him at the peak of his slump. He had a whole summer to turn things around before he went to Minnesota. He definitely spent time adapting his game.

    As ridiculous as it is, I actually forgot he was a Ranger. Man he was a complete non factor with us.

    could have been the change in scenery, could have been a better fit, could have been more motivated.... but if we kept him he could still have underwhelmed in ny

    A little low with Jordan's daughter just dying from SIDS my man, but that's OK.

    Anyway, yes, I forgot he was a Ranger too because he was that invisible. Makes you wonder what Nash might do!
