So, Staal secretly desires to step out of the shadow of Malkin and Crosby only to step into the shadow of his older brother?

On a small market team with a cheap owner and half empty stadium?

THAT is what Jordan Staal wants?

Yeah. Right. Staal could easily choose to stay in Pittsburgh by signing a cap friendly deal. "Give me 10 year, 40 million with most of it up front" and it'd be done. The truth is he wants to go someplace where he will have a chance at big minutes, a bigger role, and likely big money. He can get all that in Buffalo.
If we got staal for 10 years at 4 mil cap hit I would go buy a jersey tonight!
