The Pittsburgh Penguins traded center Jordan Staal to the Carolina Hurricanes for the 8th overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, center Brandon Sutter and defense prospect Brian Dumoulin.

"When you are acquiring an elite player, you have to give a lot for it, and we did," Hurricanes' general manager Jim Rutherford said after reuniting Jordan Staal with big brother Eric. A third Staal brother, Jared, is playing for the Hurricanes' minor league affiliate. 

Marc Staal of the New York Rangers is considering to join his three brothers in Carolina. Marc is signed until the end of the 2014-2015 at a $4 million cap hit - a bargain contract for a top pairing elite shutdown defenseman. Look for the Carolina Hurricanes to acquire Marc Staal from the New York Rangers and make a serious push for the playoffs.
