Pacioretty - Desharnais - Cole
Bourque - Staal - Gionta
Moen - Eller - Leblanc
Geoffrion - White - Staubitz

Markov - Emelin
Gorges - Subban
Kaberle - Weber


Personally, I would not DO IT because I want the top 3 to 5 pick this year and Plekanec is better than this season.

Other than being bigger there is nothing Staal can do that Plekanec can't. We'd save close to 1 mil in cap space, but lose a probable top 5 pick.

I'm sure Staal could be a 60-65 point producer with more ice time, but he'd still be a 1b like Plekanec and people would still be complaining taht we don't have atrue 80 point #1 center.
