Don't have much to add to this thread, except I don't want to trade Staal. Maybe I'd do it for Skinner. Mostly I replied because I had to lol at the bolded. It should be "for all intents and purposes".
I remember reading a website about common misspellings and grammar mistakes and "for all intensive purposes" was one of them. I never saw anyone make that mistake until now. Anyway, sorry about derailing this thread.
