Why on earth would MIN take that? Two worthless AHL players for a solid 2C...

I used the Coyle trade from last year as a reference. A late pick and a player who hasn't fit in yet but has potential. Staal has no place in their organization going foreword and they know that.

The difference there is that Donato actually had some potential. Petan is a career bottom-6 player at best. Marincin's likely heading KHL next year, Petan probably as well.

Staal will easily get a much better return than this.

The Coyle trade didn't involve salary retention or Minnesota receiving a player THEY COULD HAVE TAKEN FOR FREE ON WAIVERS!!!!!1

Also Paul Fenton was the GM and a documented moron, so there's that too.

You understand Petan was on waivers and you could of had him for nothing.

Rangers are not giving up a promising goalie for a UFA and a player who is a middle to bottom forward

To be fair considering that NYR is also getting rid of Staal this trade is much in their favor. Kerfoot's pretty good.

What do you think it would take for Toronto to get Staal? I'm curious. Really like that guy, even if he is on the other side of 30.

Fenton declined Boston offering their 1st and either Kuraly or Wagner at the TDL last year for Staal on an expiring deal, so probably something around that value at a minimum (more if salary is retained).

I believe I mentioned above that Fenton was a moron. He could have let Staal go to Boston for the playoffs and then signed him this summer and came out ahead a late 1st round pick.

Bracco+2nd seems realistic to me... That should do it to get him retained.

I didn't know that Boston made that offer. As a leaf fan, I'm glad that got nixed.

With the way that the leafs are playing this year I could see them being sellers at the deadline. But I've always been curious about Staal and think he'd be a great 3c on a leafs team that could use alot of what he brings.

That's kinda the range of what I was thinking plus another small piece. But then I saw Jaytea's post on what Boston offered last year.

all of my trades include Bracco and a 2nd.. and before Brown was shipped to Ottawa it was always Brown, Bracco and a 2nd. That combo just sounds good..

It works on Wild's needs as well. They need right handed forwards.

Yup. And the leafs have a pile of them including Hyman who got forced to the left side because there's so much rw depth.

I really think there's a trade that could/should happen between these two teams. I used to covet Spurgeon cause I just assumed he'd be heading to free agency this year. Now that he's signed again I doubt that he gets moved anytime soon.
