But even I realize that there comes a point where if Staal says "I'm only going to re-sign for 6.5M" that you have to move him. Shero will find that out this summer and will move him if he has to.

He's not going to waste time negotiating during the year. He's going to find out what he wants, check out the new CBA (which may cause some delay), and then either move him or re-sign him based off of that. All this summer.

And that, my friends, is why GMs get paid the big bucks.
I think that would be the smart thing for Shero to do but what if the only thing he can get is just fair value and not overpayment. Say for example from a Blues POV they offer Oshie or Perron and a 1st and that is the best offer Shero gets. It is what I would consider to be fair value however not the overpayment some Pens fans say they have to get. Do you pull the trigger on that deal?
