Staal to join the Rangers

According to TSN.ca the New York Rangers will add Marc Staal to their lineup as soon as his immigration situation is cleared up.The fact that the Rangers intend to play Staal is quite odd. Will Staal be used throughout the playoffs or is he simply here to bolster the injured blueline while those injured heal? Could they possibly consider playing Staal n the playoffs? I would imagine this is simply temporary, but this could turn out to be interesting.

Talk amongst yourselves…
