If Staal comes back healthy, stays healthy and plays well next year, his value will be much higher than it is right now, regardless of his contract situation. How many years he has left on his contract doesn't mean much if he wants to go to carolina and carolina wants him. Jordan only had 1 year left on his contract and that didn't hurt his value at all.
The one and only reason you want to make this deal now is because carolina has the 5th overall pick, and the shiny new toy is more appealing to you than the one you have.
Only the "shiny new toy" could be the last piece of the puzzle here, while Staal can be let go without drastic consequences.
