The New York Rangers blue line fully welcomes Marc Staal’s return

While Marc Staal’s days on Broadway might be numbered as time goes by, it’s no secret his New York Rangers’ presence has been sorely missed.

As it stands, New York already has limited options on the blue line in the bucket of game experience. Aside from Staal, only Jacob Trouba and Brady Skjei are the only true veterans New York has to offer.

The team’s other veteran, Brendan Smith, is currently used upfront as a forward. With that, the Blueshirts have been dressing three defensemen in their early 20s during Staal’s absence.
