Schenn was THE blue-chip asset in the Richards deal. I didn't say that every asset coming back for Staal would have to be blue-chip, but at least one would.
Voracek was a 21 year old who had already put up 50 points, and who was coming off a 46 point season. That's blue-chip in my books, and none of the assets offered to us for Staal have that value.
Young or not, we can't afford to be taking on players who aren't performing to their contracts like Schenn and Kulemin, and we certainly shouldn't part with Staal for that "privilege".
