The return for Staal was pretty impressive though, right? They did not get one big superstar player, but they did not sell him undr worth. And not only had he refused to extend with the Pens, he had also made the one team he wanted to go to public knowledge. I understand the worry about whether or not he will re-sign, but I would not get too down about the possible return yet.
