So I could see him dressing in our bottom 6 next year, if for nothing else a combination of nepotism and money.

That said, when you say that Carolina has 3 brothers on the team, it's really 3 brothers in the system (and even that is in doubt).
Thanks for the info.

I feel like the novelty of having the brothers is such a big draw, but really, putting that aside, Carolina would probably be wanting Staal as a UFA anyway, but without his brothers, they wouldn't have a leg up over anyone else.
