Staal won't sign extension with PIT... getting interesting on that front. Could the Leafs offer more? Or does he have his sites on Carolina?

If Staal won't re-up in PIT, where he loves it, not expected to extend with anyone else who may trade for him. Except perhaps Carolina.

Well, that seals end. Jordan Staal's trade value just took a massive hit. How much you gonna give up for one year of a guy who doesn't appear willing to consider an extension?

1h45m flight from Billy Bishop airport to his/my home town of Thunder Bay, where he and his other brothers own adjacent lakeshore property.

Just saying.  :P

And, I said in another thread, similar things have been said about dozens of other players, and how has that worked out for the Leafs?

Who said anything about windmills? Staal pretty much just confirmed he's a one year rental. That negatively impacts his trade value.

Well, you know that, and I know that, but a number of people would have taken that ball and ran with it.
