Jordan Staal Trade Rumors: Carolina Hurricanes Believe They Can Get Penguins' Star In Trade, According To Report

With negotiations between the Pittsburgh Penguins and center Jordan Staal breaking down, a possible trade to the Carolina Hurricanes could be in the works. The Hurricanes feel that, given that they might soon be able to get him in free agency anyway, they shouldn't give up too much to the Penguins in order to land the defenseman, according to a tweet by Pittsburgh Tribune-Review writer Rob Rossi.

While the tweet isn't specific in what the Hurricanes might have to give the Penguins in order to land Staal, just the thought that they could offer less on their end of this potential deal, which possibly includes the No. 8 overall draft pick, is a little unnerving for Penguins fans.

Staal played in 62 games for the Penguins last season and scored 25 goals and 25 assists. In the playoffs he scored three goals and six assists.
