Sabres Acquire Center Eric Staal from Wild for Marcus Johansson

Recommended Posts

One year, $3.25 for Staal, that's a million less than Mojo.

He also put up 47 points this year, considerably more than Mojo, and plays a more important position.

Are we sure this is one-for-one?

Nice.  We'll see what the details are.  Johansson was to make $4.5M this year, Staal $3.25M, both until the end of the season.

Kevyn Adams played with Staal in CAR.

Straight up one for one

Awesome!

Can't stand Staal, but he fits the need ideally as a 1-2 year 2C.

Did not expect to trade Johansson, Is Stall getting too old or is this solid? 

Staal is old as dirt, but he put up 47 points in 66 games last year and 52 and 76 the two years previous.

He can still play and as of the last time we saw him he was a solid 2C

I think I posted about what a good fit he would be weeks ago, but kinda rejected the idea because Minny ain't got any centres.

Maybe they are about to move Dumba out for a centre.

So, do Staal & Skinner finally play on a line together?

I'd like to see VO and Cozens on either side, put Jeff back with Jack.

Still would like to see Danault or Cirelli in a trade, but this makes a deal for either easier to walk away from if necessary.

Yep. Considering the price, I don't think I see a downside to this deal. And I like Mojo.

Uh-oh.

Russo is one of the best-connected writers in hockey.

He will eventually have the dirt on this one.
