Eric Staal will "never" (let me emphasize NEVER) be traded from Carolina during the duration of this current contract he just signed.
Lets look at this simplisticly.
He is 26 yrs old. He is in the 2nd year of a 7 year mega contract.
He is without a doubt one of the top 3 centermen in the league.
He is the piece the Hurricanes will build around.
Shall we continue.........
Nothing to see here folks, move along.
I don't think Staal will be moved, though the 7 year mega contract may be a reason to move him.
