Carolina paid a very high price I think too. The equivalent here would probably have been the 5th and Gardiner, and we had a much smaller chance of being able to sign him.

Sutter can very easily play the 3rd line centre role that Staal occupied in Pittsburgh just as good as Staal did, he just doesn't have the offensive potential that Staal had. Plus they got the 8th overall pick in return on top of that.

Sportsnet is saying that Staal accepted the same contract from Carolina that Pittsburgh offered. 10 tears at 6 million a pop. Apparently it's a done deal as of 12 Noon.

#Canes GM Jim Rutherford says long-term Jordan Staal contract is done. Looks to be same as #Pens offer... 10 years, $6M cap hit per.
