You can hypothesize all you want, it will never happen

It's not a ?of what actually gets done, IMO it's a ? of what should be done based on a reasonable projection of cost/benefit.

BOTH Girardi and Staal = high cost
return = high benefit

Additionally, the Canes are not trading both Faulk and Skinner in the same deal as well.

And it's going to take a sweet-heart of a deal for the Canes to move that 5th overall selection as well.
Flip side of same perspective

I would be very hesitant to move that pick for an oft injured Staal regardless of the bloodlines
Not really that injured for totality of career.
A guy who gets a lot of hammies, that's someone who has repeat problems.
Puck to the face/eye could happen to anybody.

Hockey decisions need to be made here and when healthy, Staal is a great player to have....when healthy.
If I am Carolina, I'm offering no more than Murphy and the 1st.
Fair enough. Remember, if Staal is on the block, Canes need to make highest bid.

Keeping the roster guys and adding Staal (who would be more than likely to sign an extension with the Canes) would be a quicker way to getting back to the PO's especially considering the divisional set up starting next season.
Thus an inducement to accept our package deal.

Carolina improves their current roster, Rangers get weaker short term while re-couping the 1st lost in the Nash trade, and improve an organizational weakness behind McIlrath and Skjei.
Okay. Same as in my scenario.

but trading both Staal and Girardi would ensure a last place finish.
Not necessarily so.

What if instead of reaching out to upgrade a W (as illustrated)
what if the acquired Skinner was added to (Skjei +) and flipped for Hedman?

We need to keep focus on most total/highest quality assets.
Different props have different + and - in search for that.
