    Want Eric Staal - Help

    I would like to add Eric Staal to my team, as I need face-off's, and am willing to move Thornton. Who else should I add to a trade proposal, so that it would be fair and one the other manager is likely to accept.

    He has weak G's, so I was thinking of offering Thornton / Semin. (or Briere). Is this fair, or offering too much?

    C: Stamkos, Richards, Thornton
    RW: St. Louis, Eriksson, Briere, Clutterbuck (for hits only), Semin
    LW: Sedin, Lucic,
    D: Seabrook, Visnovsky, Edler, Boyle
    G: Howard, Thomas, Hiller, Kipprusoff

    • are you kidding me? Staal is not relaible in the face-off's matter fact he sucked dick at face-offs last season and has only gotten a little better, he is not a guy you should rely on..Joe Thornton should have more value that Staal, Staal is not a superstar in this league, i know plenty about the Canes matter fact there my favorite NHL team, And Staal only gets goals from rebounds, which is not a good case, because your normally not gonna get to many of those oppertuinity's, Staal is not the type player who can go end to end or snipe a puck in the net, Staal is more like Ryan Malone a power forward that gets goals from only in front of the net..if you give Thornton and Semin for Staal there is something wrong with you, Semin has equal value cause he is a pure sniper but doesnt do anything else and staal is a pure power forward and cant do anything else

      • I figured it was too much. I am looking at Staal, as I am pretty loaded at C with Stamkos, B. Richards and Thornton, and we can only play 2 per night. There are a lot of nights Joe sits on the bench....which should not happen.

        I have always loved the Canes, and am aware of Staal's limitations, as well as his arctic-like cold spells. I could let him sit during those and the ride his hot streaks. Thanks for your input.

    • The team listed is mine.
      Stats: G,A, +/-, PPG, PPA, SHG, SHA, GWG, SOG, FW, Hits and Blks.

      Thanks for suggestions
