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

13 posts in this topic

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



Faulk - Sekera

Markov - Pitkanen (if healthy)

Hainsey - Liles






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.

Maybe we should just tank for Connor McDavid.
