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.
