I like him just not at these prices. Tampa would still be the favorite even if the Isles got Stone.

Yeah but he'd go a long way to being able to check other teams top players

Some teams are blushing at the original ask from Ottawa on Mark Stone. And yet so tempted because he’s so damn good. Key for some teams will be to estimate their chances of re-signing him.

And, in one case, it’s very likely a GM himself pulled out. Boston was interested. Bruins GM Don Sweeney recently scouted one of Minnesota’s games, and next thing you know, The Athletic’s Joe McDonald reported that Staal was “no longer a fit for what Boston is trying to accomplish before the deadline.” Later the same day, the Bruins acquired Coyle. I will say, Staal has been sick for like two weeks and looked much more himself Thursday. One worry if I’m Fenton and do want to move him, regardless of his modified no-trade clause: If I’m the GM of a playoff contender looking for a player to help push my team over the top, I’d be concerned adding a player who has been so vocal about not wanting to be traded and has designed his no-trade list reportedly around potential playoff teams. Staal has made it so clear he’d be despondent to leave Minnesota, I’d be scared to add him. Playoff teams want players fully invested and Staal wants to stay in Minnesota and understandably doesn’t want to leave his family.

They'll take Bailey and like it. Cannot see many players rushing to join the Sens.

I do not get players like this? I thought the idea was wanting to win?

I think to some it’s winning. But, he’s already got his ring, and i guess now it’s all about his family being comfortable. He paid his dues.....i don’t have a prob with not wanting to be a rental.

He’s at the end of his career so the desire to win isn’t there. Not a good pick up for a team looking to go for it adding a player who’s gonna just go through the motions.

I just figure why not try to win more Cups? NTC are just horrible and need to go.

We'll drag him here kicking and screaming and then we'll have one more mount to add to the wall alongside Ryan Smyth and Evgeni Nabokov.

He's got his Cup from '06. I'm sure he'd love another one but I guess everyone's priorities are different and he doesn't want to leave his family.

Scratch Staal off the list. You have to admire his loyalty to his family. Real tough for Lou to bring in players that can help who will not cost the bank.

I'm sorry chief. Staal does not want to leave Minny so now it's desperation time.

Like it was said earlier having already won, I'm guessing his family is more important and rightfully so.

Cannot argue with this. I guess he could have made a run with another team and sign back with Minny?
