Remember: In order to maximize the trade value of Staal, if the Pens are unable to sign him to an extension, they will likely grant his agent permission to speak with other teams. That means that Staal is going to effectilvely supply a list of teams he is willing to speak with. Regardless of what teams that we may like (hypothetical) trade proposals from, it's irrelevant if Staal isn't interested in signing an extension there.
