While I agree that Chicago's deal wasn't a bad one in terms of value, I agree with other posters, it's just not what the Pens need.

Bolland isn't an upgrade over Staal, I don't know how high the Pens are on Saad because he was there at 23 when they picked Morrow, and he went 20 picks later. The 18th overall won't really help us immediately.

If the Pens do trade Staal, we would probably need to address a need for the team.

I disagree with the media and some posters on here though, people make it sound like a sure thing that Staal will be traded, when Staal or his agent haven't even asked for a trade, so there will be negotiations which means he won't be traded at the draft unless he does ask for a trade.
