Buffalo is on the cusp of the playoffs, have assembled a decent core of young guys (under 25) in Ennis, Foligno, Myers, Sekera, Stafford, Hodgson, McNabb. So adding a 23 year old Staal would give us a very good core going forward. IMO, the right direction.

Sucks giving up Pomms but I'd do a deal around Staal/Pomms every day of the week, IMO addresses/upgrades both teams.
You mean until his contract is over at the end of the season and he possibly walks, leaving us without either Pomminville OR Staal?
