Staal seems to bounce from expendable to absolutely terrific and back again. But he's still only 20, too. And, seemingly, since the coaching change, he is playing well again. So too soon to tell for both of them. LA and the Pens should just sit tight for awhile.
I agree, just putting feelers out there and I'm bored at work.
