I think Staal has a lot more offensive ability than most have heard. You probably won't see it until 2-3 years down the road though, because he realizes that defense comes first. He's no Phaneuf, but I can see him putting up 30-40 points in a few years. He's shown decent playmaking ability towards the end of the season, and he has a heavy-type shot that will lead to more than a few rebound goals in the future I think.

I haven't seen Pitkanen enough to really give my opinion.
