Dan Girardi is the same way. Subtle and solid.

Staal has the ability to put up points too, its just a matter of time. Dan Girardi scored 10 goals last year. He is due for a break out season as well.
as much as i love girardi, comparing him to staal is apples and oranges. staal has it in him to become a top dman in the league, while i'd say girardi isn't too far off his potential. i don't think girardi will get THAT much better than he is now. i think he's one of the better 2nd pairing dmen in the league, whereas staal is going to (hopefully) grow into a franchise player who is the core of our d for many years. girardi will never be much more than a great complimentary player who makes our second pairing strong and may be able to fill in on the top pairing someday if there's an injury.
