Folks are right who are saying that Staal's situation is comparable to Dubinsky's. Except the ramifications both short and long term of this deal are going to be much bigger than Dubi.
2 year deal for 2nd liner< 6 year deal for 1st pairing defenseman
Plus, if we dont get Staal locked up before the preseason starts, he may be a step behind and the beginning of the regular season. If we start the regular season without him, well, I dont even want to think about that. We'd have to run Redden on our top pairing until he came back.
