Radical change?

What is the community opinion about possibly trading Eric Staal?

In my opinion, he is a complimentary player, not a leader.  He was at his best when he had Brind'amour to lead the way and great wingers (as someone else recently pointed out) to help him score.  As a leader and the team's go-to guy, he gets all the defensive attention (much to Skinner's benefit), and gets frustrated a lot.  He has never struck me as a very inspirational captain either.

Obviously his big contract is a real problem, but I wonder if we might not be able to trade him straight for another highly-paid first line talent.
