The successful teams nowadays are the one that have terrific center depth. Crosby is good enough that it hasn't really hurt them that their wingers are sub par. Plus Stafford is RFA and will be getting a pay raise, so it won't be half the cap hit come next year.
Still having crosby and malkin down the middle wouldnt leave pittsburgh's center position "destroyed". Stafford will probobly get a raise to about 3-3.5 million which is still cheaper than staal, and can easily match the offensive output of Staal, while giving crosby a legit scoring threat.
