(Rumour) Pittsburgh Interested in Reacquiring Jordan Staal


Recommended Posts

The Pittsburgh Penguins apparently want their Staal back.

The Penguins are interested in re-acquiring Jordan Staal after dealing him to the Carolina Hurricanes in 2012, according to a report by Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune. Staal has a full no-trade clause, but he would apparently waive it to be reunited with the team that drafted him.

Any potential deal is likely to occur in the offseason because the Penguins are not financially positioned to absorb Staal's $6 million cap hit without some major maneuvering.

Staal went to the Hurricanes to play with his older brother Eric Staal, but Eric's name is also floating around in trade rumors as the final season of his contract approaches.

Jordan played his first six seasons in Pittsburgh, recording 248 points in 431 games and winning a Stanley Cup in 2009.


There ya go

With that kind of talent down the middle, they shouldn't need to spend much on wingers.

Or at least that's the theory.

Wouldn't really need to:

Perron - Crosby - Malkin

Kunitz - Staal - Hornqvist

Spaling - Sutter - Dupuis

Comeau - Lapierre - Downie

That's terrifying, especially if the players decide they want to win a Cup.

Man is PIT continuously going to ignore defense and stack up exclusively down the middle?

The only Staal I can see putting them in legit contention is Marc, and he ain't available
