Murphy + 5th overall + prospect makes sense.
Gotta love that homer logic.

Actually, I've seen quite a bit of him but believe what you like. So it would seem that you're taking exception with my opinion that he isn't elite. Is that it? He's a very good shutdown D but in my opinion not a D at the elite level. Then again my opinion is not clouded by being a fan of the team on which he plays.

In no way is MStaal worth essentially 2 top 12 draft picks plus a prospect. Not to Carolina anyway. He'd have to be the guy and will not play with anyone close to caliber of his McDonagh.

Not really. The JStaal effect in Raleigh. Not exactly earth-shattering. I'd wait to be honest.
