It's the same as when a team trades for a second or third Russian or Czech or Finn and then if you put these players on the same line, national pride enhances their skill.

That being said, if Staal has said something behind the scenes or the Rangers feel he's gone in two years, better to trade him now or at the deadline than lose him for nothing.
There is no evidence. Doesn't mean it's not possible, but all the talk is pretty much speculation because 1) Carolina is looking for D and 2) How cool would it be to have 4 brothers on the same team!
