If you really think we need Staal then I think you see if Pittsburgh is interested in a deal centered around Plekanec and Staal. Add or subtract from either side if you wish.
I don't see Pittsburgh wanting Pleks over Staal, but you never know. At least that would make our team younger and add another piece to the core.
Even Plekanec straight up for Staal makes little sense unless you can get Staal signed at a reasonable cap number. Even worse he could ask for the moon and then walk as a UFA.
I don't see any reason to touch our top 3 centers unless a deal comes along that's really to our advantage.
