Penguins centre Jordan Staal reportedly turns down a 10-year contract to stay in Pittsburgh, according to multiple sources. Earlier this week, general manager Ray Shero told the Pittsburgh Tribune that he no plans to trade the 6-year veteran however the reports of him turning down a lucrative extension could change the landscape. Last season, Staal set a career high with 50 points despite playing in only 62 games.
hmm so what if the Rangers moved up to number 2 over all?? your saying no you wouldnt do that trade or no it will take alot more for 2ed overall???
It would take considerably more than you're offering. A rebuilding team doesn't give up 2 overall and one of their top two prospects unless it's ridiculous overpayment. Stepan, Aninsimov and 28 isn't close IMO... Would you make that deal if your Columbus and trying to build?
Why? It no more takes Carolina out of the picture than it does the Rangers.
Well pit doesn't deal him to us, so asset wise it doesn't impact our situation, he's only coming here ufa. Carolina i can see dealing for jordan, so they may withhold tradable assets for that potential move. We would just be hampered by the cap. They have budget constraints.
is it possible that these staals might be their own men? i think it's silly to assume that, since they're brothers, their overriding professional goal is to play on the same team. i understand the logic, but also think they'd be selling themselves short by limiting themselves. and also, if it's true that they just have to play together, they're a bit...goofy.
After looking at the name, it was. There's a lot of new posters who come here and offer "ultimatum" packages like "Nash for Stepan, Dubinsky, Anisimov, Miller, McIlrath, 1st or gtfo" and they're serious so sometimes I don't even know what to think.
