Every Pens fan understand that it has negative consequences having so much money tied up at center. It can be negotiated next year though, and it is also a point of strenght having a third line rock as hard as the Cooke-Staal-Kennedy line does now.
But as said frequently, I also think that Staal's days at Pittsburgh are numbered. I just look to the Summer of 2010 as the time where that happens, because it would make sense to flip that salary for picks and prospects if the cap takes as big a hit as speculated. One more year for Staal could mean a very substantial change in his evaluation if the form he has shown since Bylsma became our coach carries over to next season. Right now he looks a legit 2nd line center who is ace defensively.
