Florida Panthers Acquire Jiri Hudler, Teddy Purcell in Trades

The New York Rangers have been looking to upgrade their team by the NHL trade deadline on Feb. 29. They have reportedly decided to trade for one of the deadline's most coveted players in forward Eric Staal of the Carolina Hurricanes. This trade will reunite Rangers defenseman Marc Staal with his brother. The forward will be an unrestricted free agent after this season.

It sounds like the Hurricanes will not get a first round pick for Staal but they would at least get some draft picks and perhaps a prospect for a player that they likely weren't going to keep. Rather than risking losing him for nothing, the Hurricanes would be wise to trade him to ensure that they get something for him.

The Rangers will be getting a consistent goal scorer. He has at least 20 goals in every full season of his career, although he has just 10 goals this season in 63 games. Staal also has 23 assists for 33 points this season. Perhaps playing with his brother Marc Staal will help him. Eric Staal has expressed interest in playing with his brother in the playoffs. If that can't happen in Carolina with his brother Jordan Staal, it might as well happen with the Rangers and Marc.
