From this off season thread I see people still have their Staal coloured glasses on.
I think he did well for a rookie. He will be a great player.
Everyone cut down Rosival's play ,well it was Staal who made HIM look bad.
It is hard to cover both sides of the ice , never knowing where your partner is.
That last goal that ended our season. Watch what Staal was doing on the play .Alot blamed it on the puck going off Girardi's leg right to Hossa. Girardi had Crosby perfectly who was watching Hossa.??? just an example of a play that Staal would never be held responsible for but his partner is.
I said it before and now i can say I told you so. We would never do well with Staal on the first d pairing. But we did develop him so I guess all is not lost.
Just a random thought .
Staal and Girardi as our first pairing if we don't sign top defender.
