Remember this is about winning Stanley cups... not accumulating draft picks and being in good cap shape.
No one has suggested trading him for draft picks. Stalberg has a top 6 skillset and is playing on the 3rd line. Trading him for a hitting/defensive 3rd liner or a 2nd line center doesn't make any hole in the roster.
