Jordan Staal is currently demanding a trade there.

While I always thought he was overrated, of your put Eric Staal behind Spezza and Seguin, that's a pretty powerful top three.  Their defence and goaltending still needs work though.

Edit, for some reason I thought it said Stars.  Still a good deal for them, although I am not sure how much he is going to provide in the second line centre role.

Psst. Minnesota, not Dallas.

Yeah, see my edit.  Brain switched teams on me.  I'm old.

Close to his family, actually. Minneapolis is one of the most common destinations for Thunder Bay residents.

That's exactly what I was thinking, I just didn't know if his family was still there.

Surprised at the term. Not so much the money as he was just awful last year.

They're all still here. Jordan, Eric, and Marc built houses next to each other on a small lake just outside of town. His parents run a fairly successful sod, soil, landscaping business.
