Leafs also gave up Gustavsson to the Jets for a 7th round pick. Good! He has been nowhere near the Conn Smythe winner he was a decade ago.

Now we just need an actually good goalie, hopefully from the Canucks.

In an interview today, he said he would have been interested in a shorter term deal, but the 10 years made him think that it would have essentially kept him from ever playing with his brother. He also sort of mentioned the talent in Pittsburgh and his desire to have a bigger test of his abilities. All in all, this trade looks like it helps both teams, and while everyone in Pittsburgh hated to see him go, there is genuine appreciation to him and also happy to see him get a prominent role in Carolina and be united with his brother.

Pittsburgh gets a good defensive center in Brandon Sutter, another high first round pick (which they used to grab another good defensive prospect (pulion), someone else who sounded decent (can't remember right now), and some serious cap relief! Pittsburgh also traded michalak to Phoenix, again providing cap relief.
Of the centers Pittsburgh needed to keep, he was the one. He was the one with heart, guts, and discipline in the series against Philly. I was hoping the Pens would do what was best for the team and move Crosby or Malkin. If Staal's primary motivation was playing with his brother, there's not much else you can do. Wonder if Carolina is going to make a move for Marc.

I think Shero was genuinely trying to keep him, as well as Crosby and Malkin. 60 million is a lot to turn down. But if in the end they didn't think they would be able to satisfy him (whether it was being the first center or family considerations), they had to deal him now as next year they would have no leverage once he was an unrestricted free agent.

I completely understand the move. I think the Pens might be worse off without him depending on how the players/picks they got in return turn out. He was just a really solid player and it had to be painful to let him go considering how consistent he's been and there aren't a lot of players in the league that do everything he does as well. I like Staal and how he plays. I thought he was a guy that they needed to keep at nearly all costs.

Crosby will be signing a 12 year, $104.4 million contact extension. So, it looks like he will be a Penguin for the rest of his career (13 years). Contract has an AAV of 8.7 million (in terms of cap space).

So, he is getting the same AAV as the existing contract. The talk on Pittsburgh sports shows is that this is somewhat of a discount in that he wanted the team to have room to sign others. This, plus the increase in salary cap and getting Staal's and mccaulich (.sp?) off the books gives the Pens some cap room to pursue others.
