I've been on the trade Staal for a winger bandwagon, but the way he has been playing there is no way they can get back equal value for him, unless another team is willing to grossly overpay.

He has been the best player on the ice in many games over the last couple of months.

It seems like the game has slowed down for him... he is passing the puck very well... something I didn't think he would ever be proficient at.

He is also carrying the puck up ice and beating multiple defenders, consistently.

He has become more physical and is shooting the puck... all while still playing his usual sound defensive game.

In a nutshell, he is doing everything well right now and looking dominant...

This is the Staal I was hoping to see when he was drafted. He has really become a beast... if he continues this play into next season, his contract will be a huge bargain.
