But salary cap aside, please please tell me how the hell that would be underpayment from EDM for Staal?
Major salary cap issues....Horcoff (5.5 M) and Gilbert (4 M) for Stall (4 M) -- the Pens are adding almost 6 M to their pay roll while clearly downgrading at the centre position, and the 10th overall pick is not enough to justify that. Gilbert is a capable puck moving defenseman, but the Pens have enough of those in Gonchar, Letang, and Goligoski. What the Pens need is some secondary scoring to go along the likes of Malkin, Crosby, and Kunitz.
I think Gagner + pick for Stall would do it.
