That's a lot of what makes me not like this. Even though I think it was a bit of an overpayment, I understand why they traded Sutter, 1st and Dumoulin for J. Staal. It gives them a 1-2 punch down the center that almost every cup champ since the lockout has had, he's still very young, and we knew he'd re-sign with Carolina.

Iginla is a fantastic player, but I don't think he puts the canes over the top, he could walk at years end and even if he was willing to sign, he'd be 36 at the time. Now he could be like Ray Whitney and continue to perform into his 40s..or he could be like Rod Brind'Amour (and many others) who drastically dropped off after hitting 35.

All that makes me not like the deal, especially in this shortened season when who knows what will happen.
