    Absolutely. Let’s get older and end up with nothing in 2 seasons when he is UFA. Idiot.

    Im a little bit of a homer cause im from thunder bay like staal but what about if they retained some salary and added a pick ? carolina would probably prefer kessels age to grow with there young guys, more pieces to both sides would have to be added

      Funny I was just thinking the same thing, lol. Now what about Kessel to Car for say Skinner & their 1st. I would even consider retaining salary. Kessel would give Staal an explosive winger not to mention Staal doesn’t want to be traded.

      Cause Kessel is lazy, ugly, he’s a jerk, short, over paid and he smells #torotomedia

      The fact that Carolina wants to trade Staal tells you he’s on the decline. Ordinarily, he’d be an “untouchable”, and he’s still only 30. He’s one of the most versatile forwards in the game, taking faceoffs, killing penalties, and playing a sound 2 way game. But he appears to be losing his scoring prowess and probably has lost a step. He could rebound, or he could be Dany Heatley in one or two years. Huge risk.
