Jordan Staal quietly requested a trade to the Hurricanes to play alongside his brother.
Hence why near full is bolded. Ill gladly eat crow if Staal bolts to CAR during FA. I wouldn't rule out a trade. Just not for a Tlusty who can easily be on the infinitely long list of 1 year wonders. When he repeats that performance, then maybe a deal can be had around him.
