Think I made it clear I did not want to package the 5th + other assets for Staal. He's a good number 2 center, hardly worth what the Leafs would have had to give up for him. Moreover, he wouldn't have resigned with the team anyways so the argument was redundant.
Good pick-up for Carolina. But to be fair the team was better than us last year despite Skinner getting hurt and E. Staal having a terrible year.
Well said. Count me as a member of those that had no interest in dumping our 5th overall for a 2c.
And yes, possibly good for the Canes, big no thanks from the Leafs
