I'm just curious what kind of unbelievable talent analyzer you are if you have the ability to say what a 20 year old player is and what he isn't. That's impressive sir.
Since we neglect to see the whole picture and would like to just highlight his offensive struggles and what he is not, I will do the same and just highlight 2006-07 and last game.
I am at the point where I think we should trade Staal and I hope with every fiber of my being he turns into a center that's every bit as good, if not better, than his brother. I'm not big on "I-told-you-so's", but man would that be a good hard lesson for people who like to chalk a 20 year old player up as far as what he is or isn't before that player has only just began to nick the surface of his potential.
