I don't know. If they paid Staal a good amount of money for x amount of years, I don't think he would have split.
And Chicago has 35M tied up in their 6 Core pieces. Our core of high priced players is currently at a number of 5, and 2 are already locked up long term at 6m/year, with the others likely being around the same amount. Along with the fact that the cap will be increasing yearly, holding on to the core for the next 5-6 years atleast doesnt seem like a problem.
You'll still need to get some veterans and a goaltender.
