Relax, there is no urgency to do anything with this team. Instead of giving Staal away, I'd rather trade Kreider. That could get us a semi-proven NHL star.
Those are pretty good points made here. We definitely would not get a better player if we trade Staal now because his game is nowhere near where it was last year.
Regarding ChrisKreider, we've waited this long so we might as well continue to wait until he signs and find out if his skillset will translate to the NHL.
As far as McDonagh is concerned, he has the most upside of any of our defensemen because he is freakishly gifted athlete and one of the best skaters in the league. We really lucked out getting him.
