There are other d-men I'd try to move first, but there are very few players on this team I'd say for sure we can't move.
He's 23 who has drawn 3rd line pairings. Anyone remember the Vanek - Roy- Afinogenov line in 06-07 . Vanek had 45+ goals that season..... was in a fluke? Not.... just had 1st/2nd line talent on the third line. Staal is a 2nd line talent who excels because teams are more worried about Crosby and Malkin period. TRading for him and paying more than 5.5 a year is a mistake
