There are pros and cons.
We still have McD and MDZ at LD. Moore and Skjei in the pipe.
It would make a ton of sense for us to get another playmaker. We desperately miss one. Brad Richards possible replacement if bought out.
Staal has a tough injury history now, and you know he will miss a ton of time if hurt.
At the same time, Ds hits their prime around 30. Staal is still young, and ought to have another gear in him. I think he is our top D and 2nd most valuble player when healthy.
