People said this last year about Dubinsky and then he never went to camp which was completely stupid and not needed at the start of the season. Stupid on both sides.

Do we really want that again?

And like I said, someone will throw an offer sheet to Staal if he is not signed.

Listen some teams have no problem paying there guys big money early on. But alot of teams who do that end up regretting it. A young player could get complacent making big money. No problem with letting him earn it and mature a bit before handing him a small fortune.
Completely false.
