When was he terrible and lost as a winger? In the first four games of this season? He scored 29 as a rookie playing on the wing. Give him time to adjust to it. He played center pretty much all of last season.
Don't misunderstand me. I like Staal but I just don't see him being here too much longer and I would like to get something sizable in return that can help us down the road.
Like I said, I'm only in favor of trading him if the return includes someone like Bouwmeester or Gaborik. Some of these names you guys are mentioning--like Kotalik (unless Pominville is coming with, no thanks), Horton (signed for the next five seasons), and Antropov (why would Toronto trade him?)--just won't work in a deal for Staal.
