Even though he is talented, he wouldn't be an upgrade chemistry-wise over what they have for the top two lines.
The Thrashers also need size, grit, and to improve their PK.

They score enough goals to compete as is, what they need is to tighten up the PK and prevent more goals against. Staal helps there.
