I'm down with it except that I don't believe it's possible to get Staal with merely a small overpayment.
well, anyway it all depends on what Pittsburg actually asks. For me, if they'd hypothetically agree to what I proposed before, I would do it. If they'd ask much more than that, then I would forget about it.

As for Staal earning 4 million for the next four seasons, I don't really mind when Pleks will probably be doing about just a mil less pretty soon... so for ONE mil more, for a guy who produced 49 points on a third line with pee-shooters, I'm quite okay with that as his production will probably go up if you put him with guys like Higgins, AKostitsyn, Latendresse or MaxPac.
