Either way, you reinforce my point.

Back-peddling at it's finest.
Holy hell, man. Are you serious? You're acting as if made a Seidenberg-Chara argument. Not at all.

I'm simply saying that compared to the level of player Staal is used to playing with in NY, he won't have nearly the same quality (or caliber) partner or D corps depth in Carolina. I never said nor implied McDonagh was the superior player but rather that Staal would see a huge drop-off in D play in Carolina.

Is is really that hard to understand? I mean, you quoted all my posts. All there for you read and not one iota of backpedaling and your point seems to be one of confusion. Even if he were paired with Faulk, the rest of the corps is well below that of NYR's.
