I'm sure Shero will talk to Malkin before he signs Staal with plans to play center. If Malkin says no, he wants to stay at center you have to do something else with Staal. If Malkin wants to play center, you let him play center. If that means you have to trade Staal, so be it. I think we can get a better player for 6 million dollars than Staal at wing.
The point I think jig is trying to make is that the Penguins would be a better team with Staal centering Malkin than it would be with Malkin center Staal. He isn't saying that we should do that if its going to push Malkin out the door.
