If the team felt after next season that they were going to have a hard time extending him they could still get a 1st rounder for him at the 2014 draft.
Yes, that's all true, but next year, will that CAR first be a #5? If it is, will we be able to draft someone of Nichuskin's caliber? Will CAR even need a player like Staal still next year? I think it's now or never if we want at least a first back, especially if Nichuskin is available. It fills needs for both teams.
