Former pen signs familiar contract

Postby MarioLives on Sun Jul 01, 2012 2:41 pm

Not sure if this was posted. Staal signed a 10 year 60 million contract with Carolina.

Not mad, he wanted to play with his brother. Nothing else was in play. He didn't have the loyalty to the Pens, blood is thicker than water. Happy for Jordan, we were lucky to have SHero play that situation and get the deal he did. That could of gotten alot uglier.

I think he also was tired of being a third line center. Hw now gets to play with his brother AND move up to the first or second line and maybe first PP unit. Good luck Jordan.

I'd rather see a player leave for money, than saying he'd rather be elsewhere.

I think it was about his role, and his family. I'm honestly fine with it. The annual discussion about where he and/or Malkin should play was as much a distraction as a luxury. And in return PGH picks up a more natural 3rd line center, and a couple of top flight D prospects, which we all know Shero has had tremendous success in utilizing.

If ever there was a win-win-win, this is it.

It was never about the money. Staal didn't want to be a third line center anymore, and he will have a much larger role in carolina. I'm not mad at all.

Yes another good point. Good ulck to Jordan except when you play the Pens. Got to figure if the confrences get realligned we might face them 6 times a year.

I guess that's why I'm a little pissed. I do wish Jordan nothing but the best, though.

I am honestly perfectly fine with it and do not think its a direct knock on the Pens or anything like that.
I think that first and foremost he wanted a bigger role (obviously) and 2nd was to play with his brother
if he was going to leave.

We were spoiled here for 6 years. Very rarely can you keep that kind of depth at any position in any sport. I mean we are talking
what could turn out to be with the cap and parity one of the greatest position depths of recent memory. He only has a limited time
in his career as well and as much as we hate to believe it, there is opportunity and chances to win outside of us. He will get a
bigger role there so good for him.

Good for Staal. Great run for the Pens. Good return on the trade. No hard feelings. We can all move on....until we meet the Canes in the playoffs :-)

Not sure why anyone is upset.

He didn't want to be here long term. He wanted to play with his brother. He rejected the Pens offer which he had every right to do. Then Pens made a good hockey trade, and then he signed long term with Carolina as he had hoped to do so.

I think it works out well for both sides, and I guess I just don't understand why someone would be upset at him. Believe it or not, sometimes the Pittsburgh Penguins are NOT the best for a player long term.

Whatever, eff Staal. Claimed he wanted to stay but didn't and then signs the same exact deal. The only thing I'm happy about is the Pens not paying him 6M a year.

I'm glad he didn't sign that 10 year contract with the Pens. I think 6 million's overpayment for him.

Or just come out and say he'd rather be somewhere he can be a #2 center. GMRS doesn't make an offer he knows will be rejected because a player wants to leave. Waste of time and a great way to piss off fans...
