That being said, the Pens aren't without flaws themselves. Who knows how Crosby will come back, meanwhile Malkin's production has taken a bit of a dip and Staal was pretty underwhelming offensively with first Crosby then Malkin out.

The Pens desperately need a good winger. Whether Neal will turn into that is unknown, but their next best offensive players are Kunitz and Cooke, and Kennedy who's going to be wanting a raise. They have to resign Talbot as well.

If Fleury wasn't flat out dominant for a majority of the year (especially once Malkin went down), you don't see the Pens doing nearly as well as they did this year.

Staal isn't enough of a factor to make a big enough different against us. I would take any one of our top 6 that can play center (Richards, Carter, Briere, Giroux) over Staal.

Two payoff series Staal shutdown whatever line he was up against.

For sure. Staal plays good against us in the playoffs

He's a brilliant defensive center, especially with Cooke and Kennedy, but the "he'd be a first line center on any other team" cries were silenced emphatically this year.

I was at that game... that was absolutely amazing.

A shame, there was some good chat in there. Ah well. I'm sure there will be 30 more Carter trade rumor threads.
