they have some other nice pieces/prospects that they COULD offer up to the Ducks, but without Staal to center the trade around, I really doubt the Ducks make a trade with the Penguins. Just doesn't seem like a very good match for them anymore
Ya we just can't offer them the pieces they actually want back so we'd have to overpay by enough that they couldn't turn it down.

How about Domoulin, Sutter and Pouliot?
