Lyle Richardson of The Hockey News talks about all the rumors sourounding Pittsburgh Penguins Jordan Staal. In his blog he mentions an article by Ottawa Sun’s Bruce Garrioch.

The Ottawa Sun’s Bruce Garrioch mentioned Staal among his “top five pre-draft trade possibilities,” and listed the Buffalo Sabres and St. Louis Blues among the interested teams.

Garrioch mentions the St. Louis Blues and Buffalo Sabres as two teams interested in acquiring Staal.

3. Jordan Staal, C, Pittsburgh: This guy would attract plenty of attention. He is the best third-line centre in the league.

The Penguins are going to have to clear cash if they’re going to keep this team together. That could mean moving out a player like Staal because Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin aren’t going anywhere.
