Montreal doesn't have the assets Pittsburgh is looking for.

Pitt wants a puck moving D-man and a winger for the second line.
No way Montreal can afford to trade Markov or Subban for Staal.

Only thing that I can think of is Andrei Kostitsyn Weber and a pick for Staal. Salary wise it's a wash.
Staal makes 4 million and AK makes 3.25 and Weber under a million.

I think AK would score 40 in Pitt playing with Crosby!

Not so sure Pitt makes this deal though, Oh well it was a nice dream!
When it is all said and done, and the summer of dreams is over....I think we may see Pouliot centering the second line.....and seomeone like Frolov replacement him at LW.....

Seeing what is UFA, I dont see a whole of C that Montreal would want....either too pricey (Marleau) or too small.....
