If this is his level at age 23 on the 3rd-2nd line, than what does 25,26, 27, 28, 29 look like on a first line. In my opinion he's a patrice bergeron clone, and he was the number one center for the stanley cup champion boston bruins.
I'd rather not trade Plekanec and the 1st for Staal, if we do trade that pick it would need to bring back a Top line Winger.

How about Plekanec, a 2nd and Kristo for Staal
And then our 1st pick + for a player like Bobby Ryan or deal for Dustin Brown

Ryan Staal Gionta
Pax DD Cole
Leblanc Eller Moen
Geoff White Staubitz
