After finding out about trading Sutter, im not as excited about this trade now. We didn't really improve much. Just stayed even. JR couldn't contain himself getting all the Staal brothers he can at the expense of giving away too much.

So looks like we're going to continue rotating wingers at center

E. Staal - J. Staal - Jussi Jokinen
Ruutu - Skinner - LaRose

That's the first two lines.

The rest, I don't know.

I don't see us rotating 2 center lines with wingmen

Jordan came to play with Eric and which will force Eric to move outside, this will also allow Eric to become more of an offensive player anyway.

The only reason I put Skinner back at center is because I don't know who else to put there. I refuse to believe that Jeremy Welsh is the answer to the number two center position.

Gave up way too much... Sutter + Dumo + the 8th pick, we took one step forward, two steps back. Sure J. Staal is an upgrade over Sutter, but we coulda snagged Forsburg with that pick and picked up staal in FA next year.

Parise - E. Staal - Skinner
Jussi/Someone - J. Staal - Ruutu

Would be preferred.

Parise isn't coming to Carolina, he is going to Pitt now.

I don't know, I heard the Wild are tops of his list right now but maybe the acquisition of J.Staal makes us more enticing.

The only problem is, I think we do Staal's contract right now instead of next year which will take away some of the money we could throw Parise's way. That's the only reason I don't agree with you.

Ruutu- E.Staal - Skinner

Jokinen - J.Staal - Larose

That's how it is atm. You guys act like switching centers and wingers around is no big deal when it is. They have different responsibilities. I don't want my star player kicked out to wing just so he can play with his brother. He's been playing center his entire career here.

TSN talked to Rutherford and said that Jordan and Eric will play on the first line together.

Thinking anything other than that is absurd. You don't give up as much as we did for a 2nd line center.

Pretty bad move for the team then. Good first line, but then after that good to mediocre. It was a stupid move to get rid of Sutter and also stupid to have both brothers on the same line simply because they are brothers at the sake of the team. JR couldn't help himself. He's losing it. Might as well change the team name to the Carolina Staals.

[quote]The Hurricanes have acquired Jordan Staal from the Penguins for Brandon Sutter, prospect Brian Dumoulin and their eighth overall selection in the 2012 draft.

Well, that came together pretty quickly. A day after he rejected the Penguins' 10-year offer that was reportedly worth $60 million, Staal heads to Carolina to join his brother Eric. The 23-year old has a year remaining at $4 million before he becomes a restricted free agent, but he's sure to sign an extension with the Canes before that point. [b]He wanted a more expanded opportunity, and he'll get that with the Hurricanes, likely becoming their first-line center, with Eric shifting to the wing.[/b] An excellent two-way player, Staal's 25 goals and 50 points last season only begin to show to the tip of the iceberg for his offensive potential. The center will play in his seventh NHL season next year and he should thrive with his new team. A point-per-game pace can't be out of the question. Quite a day for the young power forward, who also got married Friday night.[/quote]

That's from Bob McKenzie, one of the most respected men in hockey.

Get ready for mediocrity at the center position. Jokinen and Skinner aren't the answer there.

If Sutter becomes the player he could potentially be, then yes, Pittsburgh wins the deal. Clearly a "win-now" move by Rutherford after years of being on the fringe of the 8th playoff spot. Certainly puts the Canes in the drivers seat to challenge the Caps for the Southeast.

My only criticism is it takes us out of the Parise sweepstakes (assuming Jordan signs an extension.) You could tell when Pitt GM went to the podium that he did not want to give up Jordan, but his hands were tied.

Sacrificing the team so that 2 brothers can be together. F**k JR. I feel like Im going to vomit this trade makes me so sick. Im sick and tired of this team being mediocre when they can be so much better. What's next? Trading Faulk and Skinner so that Marc can join his brothers? This team will never get out of the gutter as long as JR is here. He has gotten worse since our Stanley Cup win.

We really need to take a look at Jiri Hudler, Ryan Suter, Zach Parise, P.A. Parenteau, Alexander Semin, Dennis Wideman, Kyle Wellwood, Steve Downie, Ryan O'Reilly, Jamie Benn, Sam Gagner, Kris Versteeg, Sergei Kostitsyn, Shea Weber, Micahel Del Zotto, Nick Foligno, Jakub Voracek, T.J. Oshie, David Perron, or Evander Kane

If we can at least get two or three of these guys we will be a hell of a team.

Im not even going to let myself become excited at the possibility of this team making a move that makes sense anymore.

Lol, I don't think it's as bad as you think.

Bob Mack said that he expects J. Staal to be an 80 point guy next year since he will finally be playing on the first line with Eric.

I didnt want this trade anymore once fors fell to 8. I could stand it if it was 8 and dumo(our 2nd best d prospect) but losing sutter makes this deal stink. It's not like staal was a rfa next yr, he was UFA who supposedly wanted mot come here. Gave up too much.

So what about everything else after the 1st line?

Have you ever said anything positive about management or this team in general? You want him to make a move so we're no longer mediocre, so once he makes a "win now" move, you complain!

For crying out loud, it's Brandon Sutter, not Wayne Gretzky. And it's June...

They obviously expect Rask to make the team. Next to Murphy, he is our top prospect.
