I dont see Staal going away personally. Everyone brings up the "he'll bolt for Carolina", but all that's going to get him is marketability. He will be much further away from a cup if that is his dream (and i would anticipate it is).
I can see him resiging here. I don't think MDZ would have been traded if Staal had plans to leave...
I'm really excited that Callahan might be traded. Fact is, he is replaceable. Girardi is absolutely not.
Now, I wonder about the other free agents that we have...
Zuccarello - #1 priority. Guy should be locked up for 5 years at minimum
Stralman - should be resigned. He won't be expensive, and there is no prospect to replace him with
Kreider - Absolutely must be resigned, locked in for 2-3 years at minimum
J. Moore - He's in AV's plans for the future, so he'll be locked up on a 2 year bridge deal
Brassard - I'd evaluate at the end of the season. Maybe keep him on a 2 year bridge deal
D. Moore - Should be, and will be resigned.
Brian Boyle - Should be, and will be resigned.
Carcillo - Send back to the minors so we don't keep our 7th round pick, then send him packing at the end of the season
Pouliot - I'd evaluate at the end of the season, worth maybe another 1 year deal
Just my guesstimations
