I would rather spend that 3+mil on a player that brings something different than Sharp, Hossa, Toews, Kane. Like a Corey Perry, or Hartnell type.
You speak of him like he is a finished product and give no grounds for him being able to gather his skill improving after a great jump in talent. If was given a fair share of PP time compared to actual play production of others on the unit, he could be a 25-25 player.
You don't know what Stalberg as a player will look like after next season. To also say his market is well above value right now is speculation. You don't know how he is being looked at or what he would be able to be packaged with. Nobody is bringing nothing but speed and racking up nearly 100 hits per season either.
Saying Versteeg was traded for him is laughable. Versteeg was not given all that could be in value of him because he was a known salary dump for the Hawks. They were able to get something that would produce right away and the hopeful prospect whos failed in Paradis.
