Jordan Staal on the trade block?

We need more size after seeing what the Devils have done to counter us....would love Staal..hefty price. Doubt it happens since Pitt would not want him here but one never knows. Maybe Talbot and Jags can help. Otherwise, Nash is an option. However, the main focus still has to be D...just thought Staal's availability would be intriguing.

Reasons that Jordan Staal may be dealt are the Penguins burgeoning payroll, how the new CBA may look, and that he’s 3rd on the Pens depth chart behind Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. The Pens wouldn’t make a draft day trade with the Oilers for the #1 pick just to make a splash since the draft is in Pittsburgh. A trade to the Hurricanes to reunite with his brother Eric does make some sense. The Hurricanes have defenseman Justin Faulk, Staal wannabe Brandon Sutter (not as much offensive upside) and the 8th overall pick.
