Seriously the kid is what 24 years old? Prorated season of almost 40 goals? Lead the team in goals in the playoffs this year. Came up huge in the Cup year SH goal game 4 to help win the cup. Was amazing in games 6 and 7 to win the cup.
Give this kid a 6 year deal at least and at least 6 Million and call it a day.
You don't trade 24 year old studs, you can trade him when he's 30.
I really can't believe all the people that wanted to trade Staal, you can't replace players like that.
Nizzy, it's all well and good that we have the money to sign him. That isn't the issue at hand. The issue is will he want to play behind Crosby and Malkin? If it was just about money then there wouldn't be a million topics about this.
And it's not like we wanna trade him just... because. If he refuses to sign, then you trade him to get value in return and not letting him go for nothing.
