We already have our own version of that player in Eller. Not as advanced at the same age but projects to be a very similar player.

Here are some interesting tweets on the Staal situation...

My take on Jordan Staal situation: PIT doesn't want to trade him, wants to sign him and may make him a long-term (7 to 10 yrs maybe?) offer.

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie
At that point, it would be up to Staal to commit long term to Pens or not sign. If it's not, PIT would have to explore trade options.

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie
IF outcome is trading Staal, PIT's return/field of teams SEVERELY limited by fact Staal 1 yr from UFA. No team pays big for 1 yr rental.

So even in trade scenario, Staal drives bus to large degree. Decisions, decisions, but first things first...he's getting married Friday.
