The Carolina Hurricanes have acquired Jordan Staal from the Pittsburgh Penguins for the 8th overall pick in the draft, Brandon Sutter, and Brian Dumoulin.

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.

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

That's the first two lines.

The rest, I don't know.


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.
