If you can get a Bobby Ryan centered around Staal you gotta do it. Mcd and Girardi are just as good as Staal IMO.
Yes, with our defensive depth we might make it without Staal, but I'm not going to trade him just because he is a bit slow to get back to his usual playing level. And I'm not sure Ryan is a player worth Staal +. He definitely fixes a hole (another top-6 winger) but he's playing on a line with a lot of talent and yet his stats aren't blowing anyone out of the water. In the end there are certainly a few players I'd trade Staal for, but all of them would cost far more and they aren't available anyway.
