And as far as Getzlaf vs Staal goes, I'd rather have Staal.
Ennis is better and has proven more in the NHL than both Wilson and Bailey.

A package featuring a more proven young talent like Ennis is probably more enticing to PIT than one featuring Bailey or Wilson, who both have been scapegoats at times/in their coach's doghouse for their respective clubs.

Ennis has proven more in the NHL than Schenn. That parallel doesn't make sense to me - Schenn was a top prospect, not a commodity already on the team.

Maybe I'm overvaluing Ennis' trade value and undervaluing Staal's. I don't think I am.
