I think if Staal was going, it would be Skinner+ coming back. Skinner plus the 5th overall if we sent another piece as well. If Del Zotto is going, I think Skinner for Del Zotto would be close to a straight swap. Just my opinion though. There's a lot of risk involved in taking on Skinner and his contract. He's undersized and has multiple concussions. He's at the height where players are going to often hit him in the head just because their shoulder is naturally at that height. It's dangerous.
****, If we drafted Drouin/Nichuskin with that pick, I'd flip Skinner for another D-man.
