Staal isn't a bust nor is he gold right now. One can't justify him as a good choice because of CURRENT situation with the Pens. Like I said, you don't (normally) use a high pick for a checker.
He's only played on the third line for one season, and he was only 19 years old. We already have Crosby and Malkin, and there's no chance in hell he ever centers one of the top two lines over either of them.

Like I said earlier, Therrien is very likely to use him on the left wing of one of the top two lines this season. We have Talbot who's more than capable of centering the third line which allows us to move him up to bring some skill and size to one of Crosby or Malkin's line.
