I think the plan is for both Staals to play on the same line, if the Canes do happen to acquire Jordan, but I question how well it will work out with one not playing his natural position. Plus, the possibility of getting Jordan for free or a pick next summer exists.

For the sake of conversation, what would the Ducks want from the Canes to make a Ryan trade happen? I offered up Sutter, McBain, 2013 1st and 2012 2nd for Ryan when he was speculated/rumored to be on the block last year. That desk-chair GM offer still stands.
I'm not going to try to haggle a price, but from the sound of things, our owners will only approve Ryan's trade if it's a knock out offer. With that said, who knows what they think a knock out offer is, but I think Carolina is in a better position to give us that than Pittsburgh is.
