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
but
return = high benefit

Quote:
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.

Quote:
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.

Quote:
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.

Quote:
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.
