Whos to say Jordan would want to leave Pittsburgh to no longer be known as the "3rd center" only to be "Erics brother" even more so than hes ever been.
Exactly. If I were Staal and I wanted out of Pittsburgh so I could assume a top 6 center role, I'm not sure my first choice would be the team where I would be "Eric's brother" rather than Jordan Staal. I want a place that lets me be "the guy" (ex Nashville)or a serious cup contender where I'm the number 2 center (Ex Chicago, Anaheim, possibly San Jose). Of course, maybe he really wants to play with his brother. Who knows.
