Lol. Hell no.

I believed that comparison pre-draft.

Now, you gotta be kidding me.

 

 

Still a fair comparison, He's got another 2-3 years of development before he reaches the Age of Pippen in year 2/3 of his career. MKG's defense, rebounding and transition game are all Elite or near elite levels.

Just adding to the fire sale rumors circling the team right now. Seen some reports that the Staals would be traded together as a packaged deal of some sort to the same team. (only a few teams able to take the cap hit) Also Andrej Sekera is likely to be moved as well.  Jeff Skinner is also highly probably to be moved if a good deal surfaces for him. Some of these rumors have been swirling for a while, this season would be a good time to sale off and build for the future with picks and talent. 

 

 

 

 

Should be an exciting season even with a bad team.

I don't see how this one doesn't get done, Staal wants it and the Leafs want it to get done. Does J. Staal gets traded as well and to which team. 

 

 

Only really other possibilities is Semin (not likely, don't think he's worth much.) Ward (high price, might be worth something though to someone.)

 

 

 

Then maybe Skinner because of injury issues...

I would take Kadri, Gardiner, and the Leafs 2014 pick.

 

 

 

Of course, they'd be crazy not to do that. lol The question is who else would be out the door? Obviously Ward if you find a taker? Anyone else?

Figured I'd add this, based on the same thing and earlier reports. 

 

 

 Darren Dreger: The asking price for Eric Staal would be enormous. The Leafs and Hurricanes have talked in the past. Would cost them a first round pick, either Tyler Bozak or Nazem Kadri and likely Jake Gardiner. Dreger thinks the Leafs would pay that.Bob McKenzie: Staal likes playing with his brother and has a no-movement clause. A trade would only happen if he wants it to happen. Sames goes for Jordan Staal and Cam Ward.

TORONTO - Eric Staal is apparently willing to waive his no-trade arrangement for a deal that would land him with the Maple Leafs.

The question is: Have the Carolina Hurricanes reached the point in which they are willing to trade their best and highest-paid player as part of both a salary dump and the beginning of a possible rebuild?
