What a deal for both teams


Its a perfect deal.

Pittsburgh gets cap space + Sutter. Sutter goes right into Staals role + the damn draft pick.

Carolina gets Jordan Staal.

Pittsburgh "wins", but its a great trade for both. Shero scored.

They will need to carry 3 massive contracts in Malkin, Crosby and Parise if they did that.

Wow, great deal for the Pens. Sutter and the 8th Overall (Pouliot) for Jordan Staal.

Surprised Forsberg wasn't PIT's pick but this was a great trade for them.

Who cares - its like everything PIT does every year is fvcking magical.
The year they signed Martin and Michalek every pundit and NHL "expert" made it sound as if they just built Rome - now they can't move these guys out fast enough.

Happy for Staal - gets to play with his brother and into the spotlight - other than that - fvck 'em.

Shero just said Pittsburgh can't afford Staal in the times of salary caps, yet these announcers think they can afford Parise with Crosby's contract expiring soon.

Yup... but will Crosby be healthy enough to play well prior to his recurring concussion symptoms.

They will still be paying Sid. He's their franchise more than anyone else.

If they can't afford Staal, they're not going to get Parise.

They could sign him with or without this deal. There's not THAT much saving between Sutter and Staal. Sutter is already on his second deal and has a slightly more than $2M per cap hit. Staal's is exactly $4M.

Really shocked Forsberg is falling. Would love to see Lou get up and steal him, but with the price of climbing so far being pretty high, Im not confident at all in that dream.

I can't recall seeing Forsberg fall this far in any mock drafts. All the rankings like him, though I guess this is a year for defensemen. I wonder if TBL will go for him or another D like Ceci with their pick here?

Grigorenko was expected to fall, but Forsberg is a huge shock.

Yea, Grigorenko also could stay in Russia. Not surprised there. Wonder what the GMs know about Forsberg.
