Jordan Staal is not going anywhere. He's staying in Carolina.

Why would Carolina trade a guy they just acquired?

No way. Why would Carolina trade Jordan now? His 10 year contract hasn't even kicked in yet. If JR were to trade Jordan, good luck trying to keep Eric for more than a week. He'd ask for a trade as soon as he got the news. When Jordan turned down the Pittsburgh contract, it was pretty clear what his intentions were. And there's no way Carolina would make this move because it would show that they would be willing to ship out a player just months after the player thought he'd be playing for x amount of years here.

Disaster!!

Useless... Pleky is as good as Staal.

The only advantage is his size.

A top prospect and a 2nd on a deep draft for a minor upgrade?
No thank you!

I'm sure Eric would be overjoyed to learn that his BFF forever/brother we just spent the farm to acquire has been traded for a significant downgrade, a decent prospect and a ****ing draft pick.

Do people not remember the leak from McKenzie that said Staal would only sign an extension with Carolina? He wants to be here. He keeps our franchise forward happy (and it has shown). And he is a great player in his own right.

Plekanec isn't that much of a downgrade though. Staal is much bigger and more physical sure but offensively and defensively they are not that far.

I'm an Habs fan and if you gave me the choice i would take Staal but the skill difference between the two isn't that wide imho.

It's not that great of a downgrade on paper.

The problem is that Plekanec is 30 years old. His best days are behind him. Staal's best days are ahead.

And I already mentioned (in an edit) that J. Staal keeps Eric happy, which is huge (and so far seems to be worth 10 points on its own).

And this is disregarding the discussion that J. Staal has yet to show his full offensive potential.

well no he would of signed with the rags as well. if any kinda staal deal could be done would be between the rags and carolina, and would more then likely be mark going to car unless we could get all 3 staals out of car, but dont see that happening.

I can't see a good reason for the Hurricanes to do this. It might be different if Tinordi or Beaulieu were some kind of instant fix to our defense. But we're basically downgrading our 1B center so that we can roll the dice on three prospects. No thanks.

I don't think it was ever reported that J. Staal would sign an extension with the Rangers, though I do know that they talked with Shero about acquiring him. Further, I'm going of the McKenzie tweet that said that J. Staal wouldn't sign an extension with anyone who would trade for him..."except perhaps in Carolina."

If you can bring up a reputable link, I'll be happy to amend my opinion.

Overpayment from Habs, and makes no sense whatsoever for either team.

First: I agree with everything you just said.

Second: It is however funny how it is "selling the farm", when Carolina gives up a "significant downgrade, a decent prospect and a ****ing draft pick". Just laughing at how much you can do with words to make it sound way dramatic.
