The way that I put it earlier in the thread is this:
Staal is essentially a #1. He may not be an elite number one, but on many teams he would be the #1 guy. He's certainly a top 20 d in the NHL.
Skinner would be the closest comparable on the canes. He has more upside from his current performance so he has a bit more trade value than Staal, however, he would be the most comparable.
If you were looking to trade Skinner you would likely want:
-Top 6 forward
-Highly touted prospect/rookie
That may even be an underpayment in your eyes...
Would you do Dubinsky, Kreider and a 1st for Skinner?
The Rangers would look for something similar.
Pitkanen is probably a #3 guy on a good team
Faulk is the rookie
and the 1st is the 1st.
This is especially likely since the Canes are seeking the player. If the Rangers were soliciting offers, I'm sure the asking price would be lower.
