And that statement makes any further statements made by you invalid.

Good for him.  Hope that he does well in Carolina, just not against the Pens.

I agree.  Two solid centres is more than enough for any team.

The Pens could never guarantee him what he wanted, which is a role as a top 2 center.  Staal wanted to wait to see what they could provide as a role this year, but Shero rightfully didn’t wait.  Can’t blame him one bit.
