For the people who want Staal back, to pay him what it will take to retain him, you better accept that means Malkin to wing. Because you don't pay a guy like Staal that kind of money to play wing.

Malkin is a team guy, so he will do it, and excel as I always said. Will he be pissed to a certain extent? Maybe...

You cant avoid the reality that for Staal to be in the top 6, someone has to play wing and Staal is the worst fit...
I'm sorry, but I get indigestion every time someone suggests they should please Staal and highly possible piss off Malkin to the point he doesn't want to resign here when his contract is about to expire.
