Staal is VERY valuable to any team. We have the two best centers in the game and we are still are holding onto him even tohugh we have no wingers, he is that valuable.

I say keep him if he signs a cheaper deal around 3.5 a year for four years maybe 3-3-4-4. If he starts asking for 4-5.5 I say we have to trade him. Malkin,Talbot,Gogo, and Staal raises. The could be close to another 10million in cap.

Malkins 3.8 to 8.7 raise 4.9
Talbot .675 to est1.4 .750
Staal 2.2 to est4.5 2.3
Gogo .984 to est2.5 1.5

9.45 all estimations but thats a lot of added cap.

Still Have As UFAs


There is no way Gogo gets 2.5M next contract. He hasn't proven THAT much people. Scuderi/Gill should not get a contract a penny of 1M if they do not accept that you let them leave. Hopefully Curry can provide a cheap backup.

If we play are cards right we will have 5-7M with a sykora resigning at 2M to find a winger or two. Not much but its doable. In two or three years is when we are going to once again have cap room.
