I don't understand this logic. His level of play at center already dictates nearly $6M.

That package does not make us a better team, barring we sign Parise or Suter in free agency.
Because I think that's the similar package which was traded for Burns, maybe a bit better.

And we're not getting the best player in the deal, unless we are adding to Staal.

Pretty simple actually. If Staal is playing 3C, we still need to pay a top 6 wing. If Staal is playing top 6 wing, we still have to pay a 3C. a 3C is going to get payed less than a top 6 wing.

if moving TK allows us to get a 2nd top 6 wing, we have Dupuis to take his place. That's an all around upgrade. I'm thinking of a scenario where we do something like move Martin for Malone and then sign Ray Whitney or something. If we have to move TK to make that work, I'd do it for sure. If we're signing Parise I expect Dupuis to stay in the top 6, and then I agree with you.

Then add to it. If we're losing Staal, make it worthwhile. That deal does not achieve that.

If you have to add a pick, or prospect, or both to get a legit, long-term solution, do it.

if you talk about slotting, then yes. But let's be realistic, Staal isn't a 3C. He's very easily a top 6 player. It's just here that he is put in that role. His level of play already dictates the $6M figure....

I can't tell you what is gonna happen. I don't know what Shero should do. I really don't know if Staal really owes us anything. All I know is that the idea of him not being a Penguin is heartbreaking. Just awful.

except he is slotted at 3C. Which makes it harder to pay him that much money because it takes money away from the top 6 wings. You can't just pretend he isn't a 3C here. When he produces like he did last year while playing 3C, I will change my mind.

He absolutely deserves 6M. But it's hard to justify paying him that to play 3rd line center.

No it doesn't, unless one of them signs for a ridiculously low salary. TK is an easily replaceable player. He's also not very good at hockey.

assuming the cap goes up at least a little bit, yes it does. Tk is a good hockey player. He is replaceable though.

ya i in no way meant TK isn't replaceable, just makes no sense to trade him then sign someone comparable(for similar money)

Zach Parise ($7.000m) / Sidney Crosby ($8.700m) / Pascal Dupuis ($1.500m)
Chris Kunitz ($3.725m) / Evgeni Malkin ($8.700m) / James Neal ($5.000m)
Matt Cooke ($1.800m) / Jordan Staal ($4.000m) / Tyler Kennedy ($2.000m)
Dustin Jeffrey ($0.575m) / Joe Vitale ($0.550m) / Eric Tangradi ($0.726m)
Craig Adams ($0.675m) /
DEFENSEMEN
Brooks Orpik ($3.750m) / Kris Letang ($3.500m)
Matt Niskanen ($2.250m) / Zbynek Michalek ($4.000m)
Brian Strait ($0.605m) / Deryk Engelland ($0.567m)
Robert Bortuzzo ($0.578m) /
GOALTENDERS
Marc-Andre Fleury ($5.000m)
Tomas Vokoun ($2.000m)
------
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $70,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $67,200,167; BONUSES: $0
CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $3,099,833

if the cap is actually that high we are fine to sign Parise, but if the cap goes down it wouldn't make sense to go after Parise anyway, unless we trade Staal &/or TK

agreed. Though as I've said a few times, I would have no problem moving either or both of them to make room for Parise.

if the cap actually goes down, ya you're probably right. If it goes up, even less than Capgeek is prediction, then I still think its fine. I doubt we get Parise either way. But its fun

No one knows what the cap will be at since it will be under a completely new CBA. The reported ~70mil is if they go by current CBA standards and that is not going to be what goes forward.

And TK is bad.
