I think it'd be a red flag for Winnipeg if Staal came up in conversation. Del Zotto is more valuable than people on this board give him credit for. He was absolutely fantastic when Staal was out and he was able to play on his natural side, but it's clear he doesn't have a spot here.

Byfuglien is a very good, and unique player. I'd like to add him at the right price, but trading Staal for him, or Girardi for him, makes this team weaker, IMO. The old dig one hole to fill another bit. He's great offensively, brings a physical presence, but he's an average defender and has issues with consistency.
