This is my thought process as well. Pittsburgh trading Staal made more sense because his talents were being wasted on the 3rd line, and the cost to re-sign him as your depth centerman was not worth it. They can sell him off and still be just as dominant.

Suter, on the other hand, was on our top pairing and an integral part of the team. Trading him means major overhaul for us and we likely take several steps backwards.

I wish we had Pittsburgh's depth so we could afford to sell off extra depth pieces for nice packages! In fact that is exactly what we did with Lindback. Our D depth is not as strong though.
