And that's the rub. As often as it's been stated that Shero would move Staal only for an overpayment, Staal's agent's job is to ensure his deal is an overpayment and he'll leverage the situation. Unless Staal is moved up to 2C or shifted to wing in the top 6, $6.M a huge overpayment for a 3C.

Yeah, nobody uses OPS or WHIP routinely.
