I read carefully and I think it's a terrible trade proposal. No thanks, pass, hell no from a Pens perspective. Pulling a stupid trade like this is exactly what I don't want to see go down when the team is better off firing Therrien first and then seeing how the team will react. To move an asset like Staal for one that isn't as proven is brutal.

Don't fix a freaking thing with this team until off season so we can continue to live in NW's basement and snag a franchise player in this front loaded draft. Tavares anyone? Schroeder? MSP? Okay cha-ching thank you very much.

Gaborik out for picks in 09
Pouliot out for picks in 09
Backstrom out for picks in 09

Everyone gtfo for picks in 09.

That includes you DR, Lemaire. MN Staff for picks in 09.

No I'm joking, but they do need to leave St. Paul. It's time to rebuild.

How the hell could Pouliot prove to be a worth of Staal or even close, if his playing in Minnesota? Sometimes just the chemistry and other things just basicly doesn't fit with system and/or coach or enviroment.

Staal could get around $3.5 - 4 million cap hit and this "NOT proven" Pouliot could seddle around $1.5 - 2 million cap hit, I presume. It would be a risky move, but that Minnesota's 1st pick at next draft could balance my proposal nicely, because it's going to be pretty good draft by that first round-point of view. Maybe I throwed too much pics, but I got a pretty good feeling about Pouliot and sometimes you just have to follow your feelings.

I don't think Pouliot has proven enough yet for me to give Staal up for him. Though I still think this is a pretty well thought out deal, and Staal would be an ideal fit in Minnesota.
