  • Rangers' Marc Staal: Heads into offseason healthy

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/10/16) Staal may have been affected by nagging injuries both during the season and in the playoffs, La Presse reports.

    "I would have liked to see a better transition game from our defense," coach Alain Vigneault said. "It seemed that our defenders were committing more turnovers, in addition to scoring chances to the opponent. Maybe it's because of injuries to Ryan McDonagh, Dan Girardi and Marc Staal? They struggled to find their rhythm." Indeed, Staal saw his ice time fluctuate wildly both in the regular season and the playoffs, and he posted full-season career lows in both goals (two -- a four-way tie, to be fair) and shots (65). However, the Rangers signed him to a six-year contract extension last January, so they're stuck with him for a long time to come unless they can find a way to unload him. Either way, last season's nagging issues shouldn't affect him heading into next year.

    Rangers' Marc Staal: Returns to action Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/12/16) Staal (back) will be back in the roster for Saturday's meeting with Detroit.

    Staal's restoration in the depth chart comes after a short two-game absence, but will be much needed to bolster the Rangers' blue line. Despite his crucial contributions on the ice, the 28-year-old has been unable to find the scoresheet and is currently bogged down in a nine-game point drought. The defenseman's lack of production on the year, two goals and 11 assists in 62 outings, gives him a low-end fantasy value for daily lineup.

    Rangers' Marc Staal: Likely returning Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/11/16) Staal (back) expects to return to the lineup Saturday against the Red Wings, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

    After returning from an illness, Staal saw action in just one game before back spasms sidelined him for two more contests. It appears that stretch may come to an end Saturday, with the veteran indicating that he intends to play. Expect another update on the veteran blueliner Saturday confirming his status, but even when healthy his fantasy upside remains limited (13 points in 62 games).

    Rangers' Marc Staal: Will not suit up Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/7/16) Staal (back) will miss the matchup with Buffalo on Tuesday.

    Staal's injury, along with that of fellow blueliner Dylan McIlrath will force the Rangers to call a player up from the AHL prior to Tuesday's contest. Not exactly a prolific scorer, the 28-year-old will still be dissatisfied with his performance this season, as he's logged a meager two goals and 13 assists in 62 outings. The defenseman is averaging under 20 minutes of ice time this year, which restricts his ability to put up big fantasy numbers.

    Rangers' Marc Staal: Dealing with back spasms

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/6/16) Staal is dealing with back spasms and won't play Sunday against the Islanders.

    As a result, Dylan McIlrath will be in the Rangers' blue line mix Sunday, while we'll consider Staal -- who has 13 points and 28 PIM in 62 games to date -- day-to-day in advance of Tuesday's game against the Sabres.
