Straight up is a reasonable deal. Either Shero or Tambo could ask the other guy to throw in a 4th or 5th rounder and not be completely off-base.
Why, for the love of all things holy, would a playoff team with two elite playmaking talents at center trade a huge, effective defensive presence for another playmaking center that's no more productive, and that they don't need?

Value aside...why?

Stall's contract doesn't appear to be a particularly good one. $4M a year for the next four years.
You figure that 20+ goal and 40+ point scorers with Staal's defensive play are pretty common, do you? Let alone one with Staal's potential to do much more?

By all means, go pick one up for yourself. Elsewhere.
