Agreed

Trade for Horton - maybe? But not using Staal.

But IŽd rather sign Datsyuk, Drury, Briere or Gionta which are all proven UFA center:s heading into 10 years of prime time. And choose a cheaper center solution now (Smolinski?) + a proven defenseman (Brewer) - if one still believes in this year. Which I do. Throw some kids, extras and picks in for attaining this. It would not totally hurt a rebuild - just stay away from Staal and a few other untouchables please!
And one solid #1 defender is a necessity on this team for the next 5 years. Which just is not there now. Get him - if possible.

Just my opinion though
