Would Yzerman deal Stamkos for "pieces" ? Unless 50+ goal scorers are a common commodity, then he'd keep him. Same thinking applies to Staal. There aren't many, if any, players like Staal up for trade.
We're not talking about Stamkos/Crsoby/Malkin. Those types of players are those you build around, and whom you can almost never get fair value for. Staal isn't in same category and Shero can easily get value for him should he choose to move him.

We already have quality in Malkin/Crosby/Neal/Letang/MAF/Staal. Losing Staal for several pieces isn't the end of the world.
