A Possible Landing Spot For Eric Staal

from Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic,

Remember that Staal’s trade deadline experience, going from Carolina to the Rangers in 2015-16, didn’t turn out to be terribly enjoyable. Just my own take but I think Staal would rather stay put in Minnesota and not re-live that experience.

One of the teams that might come calling and I believe is on his ‘no’ list are the Jets, especially if they strike out on guys like Duchene and/or Stone.

Now, that’s not to say Staal wouldn’t ultimately waive for Winnipeg or another playoff contender if he feels the situation was right. Remember a year ago that Stastny waived for Winnipeg. Again, the point here is that veteran agent Rick Curran wanted to give his client as much control as possible for the trade deadline and that’s why so many contenders populate his no-trade list, a list which was submitted last summer. Which was a smart move on their part.

more (paid) rumor talk with names like Panarin, Stone and Duchene...
