Plus, teams won't want a guy who missed half a season due to injury, it lowers the return we could get. Also, If we trade Staal, shero will have to trade a couple cap-hit guys to free up the winger we'll be resigning this summer. I'm thinking if Staal goes anywhere, you have to ditch Fed and Boucher, even if its only for mediocre picks, so we get something out of them.

Sure this guy can produce on the powerplay and gets a few points on 5 on 5. But he is a defensive weak player, Therian benched him last season for his lack of commitment in his defensive zone. He is a power puff dman, his physical play is terrible. He gets out worked for pucks on the board and will never take a hit to make a play. Whitney is a modern day Tarnstrom. Find me a more complete play at the same value. Letang and Goligoski play more of a complete game than Whitney and they are half his size.
I will conceed that his performance in the playoffs last year was the best i seen him play. But still doesn;t mean he is the best we can get in that position. I would rather have another Orpik type than Whitney.
