Its cause the pens have had such young guys the past few years coming in and being huge contributors. Fleury starter at 20, Crosby 18, Malkin 20. So after Staal gets everyones hopes up high at 18 we just assume he won't have any growing pains, which he certainly is. It does seem like he doesn't get to the net at all for a big guy, but lately hes been hitting more at least.
