You're right, if Malkin wants to stay at center you keep him at center. But moving Staal to wing doesn't seem like the answer. It's not to cater to Staal, its because Staal would lose a lot more moving to wing than Malkin. Malkin would be a the best winger in the league for 8.7 million, Staal would be our 2nd best winger for 6 million. I just don't see him being worth 6 million dollars at wing and I really don't think you can pay a 3rd line C 6 million. Unless he's willing to take a pretty big paycut I don't see how he really fits here long term.
