I just want to make it clear. I want Malkin to play center. What I don't want is Staal playing wing. It seems we are at an impasse. I have a hard time justifying keeping Staal around if he isn't getting payed way less than we expect him to take. He can bring back a player that would fill his top 6 role for less money and quite possibly more effectively.
That is a sad paragraph to write. I love Staal. He lets us do things we just couldn't do without a big pterodactyl out there.
<Red>Sometimes it makes me sad, though... Staal being traded. I have to remind myself that some pterodactyls aren't meant to be 3rd liners. Their sticks are just too long. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to line them up with Matt Cooke DOES rejoice. But still, the team you watch is that much more drab and empty that they're gone. I guess I just miss my Gronk. </Red>
