I really like Staal, and at 35 with 1 more year on his contract would be nice to have him, and he is still putting up decent numbers...but I definitely would not pay too much for him. Anderson (equivalent to a 2nd round pick) and a 3rd would be as much as I would want to pay. I realize the Wild are in desperate need of centers, but so are the Jackets. Wennberg is a very good younger option, and being a 2-way (defensive-minded) centerman, on a longer contact than Staal, he would fit in very well as 2C in Minnesota for a long time. Maybe swap Wennberg and a 2nd for Staal? Staal's numbers/output now is about what Wennberg put up in his highest year output....Wenny could definitely get back to those levels. Give him a new opportunity, new coach, new system (which fits his game perfectly), new wingers, etc.
