Skinner + Murphy + 3rd for Staal + Pyatt (cap reasons)

OR

Faulk + Ruutu (1/3 salary retained) for Staal
First off: That Lindholm comment couldnt be further from the truth. If hes on the team, hes playing top nine.

There is no chance you get BOTH Skinner and Murphy.

As has been stated, giving up Faulk for Staal isnt helpful to the Hurricanes. It is at best a lateral move for a more expensive Defenseman. Obviously getting some cap relief from Ruutu would be helpful, but not at the loss of Faulk.
