Nah Crosby will be locked into an extension before the 2013 season starts or a deal will be announced midway through the season

I'd say anything 4 mil or more would cause an epic thread.

Personally I am not a Staal fan, but I think this guy does need more time to blossom... I say he gets a salary around the 3 Million range.

4 or more..

However....having a fixed dollar amount on his contract as opposed to being a RFA with no long-term contract actually makes him more movable IMO.

Depending on the $$$ I like it, but if it is to help in a trade, they better get someone they can sign.

OMG Staalsplosion!

As a proponent of the "strong third line center" school of thought, I approve of this message.

It's easy not to be wrong when you post news that was up on a creditable news source before hand.

I think this offically end the Staal will get traded debate.

Look at it logically, if you are Staal's agent, why would you let me sign a mid-range deal and i am going to assume at market value right now. It makes no sense for Staal or his agent if he is going to get traded.
Think about it, if we where trading Staal, it was most likely going to be to a team like Atlanta or Columbus. Those teams are going to want to lock up staal long Term (7 year range) for more then market value to keep him happy, Those are better contract terms then you would get with us.

Plus, if the pens where going to trade staal, why would they bother with trying to sign him in the middle of the season, i don't but it makes him more tradeable debate,

I think it's good news. Staal is locked in. He now has tremendous trade value (not the route I would go) OR, when financial terms are released, he could be playing at well below his MARKET value. Also, and this is what I am more happy about, the organization will have a better sense of the $$$ they have left to put in play for free agency.

As others have suggested, may be this gets him more tuned into production (numbers mainly) on the ice. You never know how much financial uncertainty, contract negotiations, and all that entails can wear on a player.

yeah, it was on pittsburghpenguins.com first.....not that it's a contest, but I hope nobody is paying for the info/rumors they can get just as quickly for free.
