Ranger Boy posted a fair proposal. Trade Staal to Carolina for their 1st. I would want a 1st + prospects personally, but you can't ignore the threat that Carolina presents to us in the future by snagging Staal as a UFA. Carolina is also a cellar dweller this year and will be picking at about #6 overall which is very juicy. If we're going to lose Staal we might as well get something worth while for him. If we wait to trade him in his contract year to Carolina, the Cane's first round pick may not be as good.

Also acquiring the 6th overall gives us a 6.2% chance of winning the draft lottery and picking Seth Jones. lol.
