Pens May Look To Re-Acquire Jordan Staal, What Would It Take?

I can see the Penguins trying to get Jordan Staal back. It's been tough to replace him since he left.

 

 According to Josh Rimer of sportsnet.com the Pittsburgh Penguins may look to reacquire Jordan Staal in the offseason.

 

Personally, Jordan is my favorite of the two Staal brothers and if we were going to trade Jordan then Eric would have to be involved in the trade as well.  If that was the case I would take nothing less than Evegeni Malkin.

 

All joking aside, if there was a deal to be made; I'd ask for Sutter and Maatta. We gave up Sutter, Dumo, and a very high first round pick (Derrick Pouliot) the first go around; and in my mind Maatta is equal to Dumo and Pouliot.

 

There's probably not a deal to be made, but we'd have to give quite a bit back for our best two-way forward.

btw, this is why you don't have brothers on a team unless you're like the Sedin's who are actually elite players. They know the GM will do anything to keep them. They have the upper hand in contract talks. Then a new GM comes in and has to fix this mess.

Seriously though it would have to be at least what we gave up.

Eric and Jordan aren't being moved at all, it's more likely that Marc joins the Hurricanes then either one of them being moved.

Give me Dumo and Jussi (since he will probably resign with Pittsburgh), and you got a deal. Or just Sutter and Maata.

Really, any 2 man combination of the above 4 is fair in my book. Problem is, I doubt Pitt wants Jordan's contract. What's his cap hit?

I'd do something around Dumoulin but Sutter I could take or leave.  I would lol at Jussi coming back.

Malkin.  Price would have to go up if they made the call.

Man I wish I could be a GM of an NHL team. I love GM mode in EA Sports NHL. Been playing the same hockey game the past 2 years in gm mode. I am boss.

I actually want to give the Staal's one more chance because if we blow it up we are going to be at least three years away from competing. 

 

So after hiring Dan Bylsma,

 

- The first step is to get Sutter back. Sutter is an RFA as is Tlusty so basically we need to swap rights... we'd probabky have to throw in a second.

 

- Secondly, I would let Bowman, Dvorak, and Bellemore go.

 

- Then I would re-sign Gerbe (2 mil), Loktionov (1 mil), Malhotra (1 mil), Hainsey (2 mil), and Pitkanen (2 mil)

 

- After that I would trade Nash,Harrison, and a 4th for a third liner like Chris Higgins.

 

- The next move would be to draft Virtanen (700K) who at the time I would slot on the second line with Jordan.

 

- To address the defense I would sign Andrei Markov (4 mil)

 

- Finally, I would sign Brian Elliot (2 mil) to be our back-up goalie.

 

- Oh and Trade Ward for some picks since I traded a few of ours away.

 

Skinner - E. Staal - Semin

Virtanen - J. Staal - Lindholm

Higgins - Sutter - Dwyer

Gerbe - Malhotra - Loktionov

McGinn

 

Faulk - Sekera

Markov - Pitkanen (if healthy)

Hainsey - Liles

Murphy

 

Khudboin

Elliot

 

This is also just for fun, but that first line would put up mad points and the second line could also do some damage if Lindholm turns the corner in the offseason. The third line is perfect in my opinion because you have your grinders in Sutter and Dwyer and a capable goal scorer in Higgins and finally not many fourth lines have a 30 point player like Gerbe.

 

I also think the defense could be pretty special if Pitkanen is indeed healthy.

 

All of these moves would put us right at the cap.

I'm getting tired of Eric Staal's piss poor attitude. When things aren't going good, he goes into pouting mode and just gets lazy and doesn't care about what he's doing anymore. He should be traded or at least have the C taken off his chest.
