Eric Staal to Calgary?

What would Rutherford want from Calgary for Staal? I know he may be untouchable but if the canes were to deal him later....

Calgary doesnt have the pieces. Plain and simple.

This.

Staal is Carolina's captain and franchise center. It would cost a severe overpayment to get him, and Calgary doesn't have nearly enough good pieces to offer.

Backlund + Gio + 1st + 3rd + prospects/more picks.

AKA, not happening.

right. carolina trades the face of the franchise and a cup winner and the team captain for unremarkable players like matt stajan?

rutherford is not going to trade staal unless its a complete teardown to rebuild.

Calgary needs to blow it up and start trading guys like Iggy and Kipper for youth.

I doubt even a combination of four firsts would entice Carolina to move Staal. Basically there is nothing Calgary could package the Canes would want to move their captain.

I don't see how a trade could be done for E Staal, but I am rooting for Calgary next year (other than the Leafs). Hfboards would host a mass suicide if they went far into the playoffs or actually won the cup. That and I want to wish Iglina more success.

The only way I could see something around Staal to Calgary is if Carolina hired a new coach who wanted a stronger defensive team in front of him and was offering up Staal for Bouwmeester and something else.

This. Usually when people say this they're exagerrating - but combine calgary's mediocre roster with awful prospect pool and you literally don't have the pieces.

Iginla + Kipper + a first + baertschi is probably the closest you could get and even then I don't think car would do it, and it makes no sense for calgary.

Staal is 26 and a PPG franchise Centre. A few of the packages listed in this thread are the equivalent to 4-6 firsts. By denying packages like that, you are simply saying that Staal cannot be traded. I'm a Flames fan, and I don't disagree.

Staal won't be traded unless he demands a trade. Then a package like Gio, 1st, Backlund, + Bartschi is the upper end of the kind of value you'd get for him.

Saying Calgary "doesn't have the pieces" is ridiculous, because nobody has the pieces right now. You valuing Staal based on the fact he won't be traded.

no they just need to start drafting well. Sure they might run into a few tough years when Iginla and Kiprusoff get too old but it won't be as many if they just hit the reset button right now.

The value of Staal isn't "26y/o PPG franchise center," it's "face of the franchise that singlehandedly sells a few thousand tickets a game in a market that struggles to fill seats." Calgary doesn't have the pieces because filling those seats is more important to management than anything a normal hockey player can provide.

Exactly, the price would be too high. I like Staal but I would not pay that to get him.
