Yeah, I agree. I hate to turn down a Patrick Sharp offer because he fills a need for us and is a better offensive player than Staal is or may ever be. The age difference is a killer though. Staal has his best hockey still ahead of him while Sharp has some of his best hockey still ahead of him but a lot of it behind him too. We also have a shot at re-signing Staal for close to Sharp's big cap hit.
