The Rangers do not appear likely to buy out the contract of Marc Staal when the second buyout window opens later this week. (NY Post)

Buying out Staal would leave the Rangers with savings and dead cap money of: (Cap Friendly)

  • 17-18 | $3.56 million saved, $2.13 million cap hit
  • 18-19 | $3.56 million saved, $2.13 million cap hit
  • 19-20 | $2.56 million saved, $3.13 million cap hit
  • 20-21 | $1.76 million saved, $3.93 million cap hit
  • 21-22 | $1.43 million cap hit
  • 22-23 | $1.43 million cap hit
  • 23-24 | $1.43 million cap hit
  • 24-25 | $1.43 million cap hit

Brooks writes that Staal had a “pretty good” first half last season but his game fell off after suffering a concussion going into the All-Star break. (NY Post)

Brooks writes that the Rangers would likely “prefer” to keep Staal for at least one more season, especially with Alain Vigneault’s belief and trust in veteran players.” (NY Post)

Adam Rotter: I imagine that Marc Staal will be with the Rangers this season and they will see how he does in a reduced role and then decide his future from there. My guess is that if/when the Rangers decide to move on from Staal they will likely try to do so via trade, retain salary and then part with a nice asset. The Rangers would still deal with dead cap space but only for the length of the deal, not double which is what would happen with the buyout. If Dan Girardi and all of his experience can get a two-year deal at $3 million per, I’m sure that next summer the Rangers would find a team willing to take on Staal for around there and also pick up an asset as well.
