Makes sense to both sides. Staal gets a chance to showcase his talent with players surrounding him that aren't grinders, and he gets to play a more offensive role as opposed to what is being asked of him in Pittsburgh. LA gets a great, young center to play one their first or second line, signed at a reasonable contract for the next four years, as well as a late first rounder in a deep draft.

Pittsburgh gets a bit of salary cap relief, as well as a solid young defenseman and a chance to draft a player (MSP) that would fit in perfectly with the Pens in a few years on either Crosby or Malkin's wing.

Alright, flame away.
If we're trading JJ for Staal, I'd prefer to leave the 1st rounders out of the deal.
