No, but if you want to contend for a Stanley Cup, you sure need at least one of the top defensemen in the league on your roster. One of the best centers in the league, at least, also.

Staal is a guy who would be a perfect compliment to a great offensive defenseman. So how are you going to get one of those guys with the assets we have?
