Marc is not overly flashy. Comparisons in the past to a Larry Robinson--Rod Langway style of game seems apt. The biggest difference between those two is Robinson had a bit more of an offensive game. Langway was tall and rangy and was the best shutdown d-man of his era. I think Staal is very much like Langway now and depending on how much better an offensive game he will eventually develop he may be much like a Robinson before he's done. Whatever the case and whether or not Redden and Roszival are making tons more money--he is IMO our best and most valuable blueliner and it's not even close. He is the guy we'll build our defense corps around.
