As a 'Canes fan, going from Sutter to Staal is too much of a lateral move to surrender both McBain and the 8th overall, as well as taking on the trainwreck that is Martin (and I don't think that Martin is that bad; Carolina just can't afford to allocate 5 million to a completely mediocre defenseman).

Staal: 45-50 points with little PP time, Selke caliber defense.

Sutter: 30-40 points with little PP time, Selke caliber defense.

Staal brings around 15-20 more ES points than Sutter, and equal SH/PP totals. Trading McBain and the 8th overall for 15-20 more ES points while taking taking on Martin is not a very good trade off.
