In response to me talking about how excited I was for B. Sutter here and asked how J. Staal was doing for them on the canes board.

not good. it's pretty clear that brandon sutter is just as talented today as jordan staal. the difference is brandon sutter is still improving and finally being able to showcase and grow his offensive talent (which exceeds that of j staal). what's even more ridiculous is that our joke of a GM felt the need to trade Sutter AND a pick for J. Staal when J Staal would have come here in a year anyway at the end of his contract. You have basically come into this thread and tore open a wound that wasn't even close to healing."
Even if that were true the Canes were wise to avoid a bidding war. There's a Staal in NYC as well and that team has deep pockets and a history of overpaying players. He may have still signed with the Canes but chances are the price tag would have been significantly higher.
