    I'd be surprised if this was even a consideration. Kings fans booed Rob Blake after he was traded. He went back as a player and then as an executive.

    Staal would have to be Kevin Durant-esque emotionally for nonsense like that to bother him. Plus, he should know that the fanbase would be kissing his ass if he returned.

    I doubt that. There seems to be a lot of vitriol and ungratefulness aimed at Eric to this day, and he has been gone for a few seasons now. And people have soured on Jordan too. I just don't see him wanting to return here which is a shame because we could really use him despite what some of the fanbase thinks about him.

    Spending to the cap =/= a championship caliber team.

    Lets hope Eric Staal can actually bring something of value back to this team at this point. We're a long cry from his value during the off-season.

    Only 1 team out of 4 isn’t “trying” to put together a champion team. The other 3 just aren’t good at it.

    That's a very Minnesotan way of looking at it.
