This just came across from Josh Yohe at the trib. Shero says they will not trade Jordan Staal this summer.

“You can’t have it both ways,” he said. “I can’t try to negotiate a contract with Jordan and a trade with another team at the same time. It doesn’t work that way. We don’t want to trade Jordan. We think we can sign him, and we’re going to try.”

Shero had a positive meeting with Staal after the Penguins were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by Philadelphia.

“He told me he likes it here,” Shero said. “Told me he wants to stay, that he likes Pittsburgh and likes being a Penguin.

No word yet if the trib will change this story tomorrow.
