no way the team does it for a "UFA in 1 year" Staal.... at least i hope not.

but if they were able to secure some negotiation rights, and managed to get a commitment from Staal to sign a long-term extension that both sides agreed to (something in the 5-6M$ range over 4-6 years I'd imagine), then I'd have to seriously consider it...

People make much of Staal not being more than a 60pt guy thus far, but at 24 & given the role he's largely been used in thus far, I'm more of the opinion that in a permanent top-6 role, he'd emerge as a roughly ppg level producer (70-80pts/season), while remaining an excellent two-way player.

in many ways he's a perfect complement to our current C group, allowing us to move whichever of the other 3 produces the greatest return.
