I'm in a self imposed TTFZ (Tim Thomas Free Zone) so won't discuss his situation until all the news is out.

That said, it's an even tougher situation for Pittsburgh today. Do they gamble and wait and lose out on the number 8 pick? Or do they gamble and let him play out the year, hope for a cup and a change of heart?

We all know to well that when a team only deals with one other team (forced or not) - see Thornton, Joe - that the return is never as good as it would be with multiple teams bidding.

It would seem that Staal holds all the cards. But the Pens control him for another year and who knows what the UFA status will be like under the new CBA?
