I cant wait to have two all world centers on this team, and in a few years Staal will be ready, although I still wish Shero would have traded him for Jack Johnson. The offer was there, straight up and we refused.
No way, man. Getting Staal was the better idea.
Well, I'm not sold that he's going to be a top 5 centre, but he'll be good. Of that there can be no doubt. Probably a year in, year out 25 goal/40 assist guy.
A lot of Selkes in his future, that's for sure.
Well, no matter who is getting ripped off in that deal, it's not going to happen.
