Marc Staal Will Miss Rangers Regular Season Games In Europe

For anyone holding out hope that Marc Staal would somehow make it into the New York Rangers lineup for the beginning of the regular season, coach John Tortorella put an end to that by telling the media after the game that Staal is not going to Europe.   Tortorella added that Staal will not be placed on IR, which is somewhat confusing because after the games this weekend the Rangers wont play for a week when they are on Long Island which would be enough time to satisfy the IR requirements and allow the Rangers to carry an extra player in Europe, but not that big a deal since they have enough right now.
