You keep saying 50 points per year. Staal is not a 50 point player. It's evident to anyone that while he's not a franchise center he's not a 3rd liner.

I'd rather trade the vets and build up honestly, but it won't happen, and Staal is not a fix, he's a long term piece for the core. He's same age as subban, price, pacioretty...He's EXACTLY in the right spot to be a huge addition to our core. No one expects him to be a savior.
I have no problem trading vets for Staal outside of Subban, Price and Patches. Just don't sell the farm for some instantaneous help that'll come in the form of 50-60 pts is all I'm saying.
