Absolutely. Someone will pay Staal that much. Then the question becomes whether you trade him before or wait for the draft picks. I'm not confident that we would get great picks. I'd rather pick a player up like Antropov who is perfectly capable of finishing for one of our centers plus some other asset. It has nothing to do with patience.
I agree with you but Antropov doesn't interest me.
