They did. Staal essentially signed the same deal Pittsburgh offered him, but with Carolina. It really comes down to whether or not Geno wants to stay with the Pens. By all accounts he loves it there and doesn't seem to come off as the guy who wants the spotlight. He may enjoy not having to be "the guy" all the time. On top of that, neither Crosby or Malkin seem to have egos that would drive each other out. It seems like a healthy competition/respect between them. I don't know the guy personally though, so I'm just shooting smoke.
