    Revisiting the Patric Hornqvist-James Neal trade three years later

    When Jim Rutherford took over the Pittsburgh Penguins in the summer of 2014 he was inheriting a team that was coming off of one of its more disappointing postseason exits, having blown a 3-1 series lead to the New York Rangers in the second-round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.

This lackluster performance was mainly due to injuries, something Staal has dealt with his entire career. Like Girardi, Staal is worth too much money ($5.7 million) and is just not producing. Once a fan favorite, Staal may have seen his last days as a Blueshirt. The 2012 trade with the Columbus Blue Jackets to bring Rick Nash to New York brought along high expectations for the winger. Nash had a fantastic first year as a Blueshirt,
