    This really comes down to whether or not SJ is a contender at the deadline. If they are, he's not moving. If they aren't, he won't be as costly as Staal.

    This really boils down to whether either team is a contender/playoff team at the deadline IMO. I'd argue that both clubs are in really similar positions in terms of potentially being on the outside looking in by then.

    As this team stands, right now in this division, they aren’t close enough to being a championship team to justify giving anyone away to bring him in. Why trade anyone or anything of value to bring in Jumbo 3 months when we won’t win anyway? Seems dumb

    But you're giving up young assets to acquire him. This team isn't in any position to go out and get a guy like this, they really aren't that good enough.

    If SJ is out of it at the deadline, you're looking at giving up a 2nd or 3rd round pick max. It's not like they're going to have to give up Chytil for him.

    This is especially true if he keeps struggling. He hasn't been very good to start the year.
