Why?

Both are signed to deals that end in 2013 at identical cap hits 4 mil (starting next season when Staal's contract kicks in).

Florida is weak at center hence Horton is a winger and has been moved to Center and Pittsburgh is weak on the wings.

This deal solves both team's problems, but is the value fair?
Would it be worth it for both clubs?

Your thoughts!
It's been mentioned before on here.

My thoughts are

Horton's outperformed Staal so far in their career's. He is older than Staal by a few years though. I'd say Staal + a little more for Horton would be fair. Maybe, a 2nd or so.

I don't think a trade like this will happen during the season. It's an off season type of trade that would happen around the draft or something, but not now and maybe not ever.
