Doesnt matter where Staal / Malkin play on the line. The two of them understand the following.

-Staal takes faceoffs
-Staal should play the down low d zone coverage
-Malkin would primarily be the guy taking the puck through the neutral zone.

As long as those things generally happen, they can both patrol and cover so much ice due to speed size and instincts that the results (thus far) have been impressive.

And again. It should be opponent or game situation based. The fact that both options seem to work so well is far from a problem. And IMO, speaks volumes about J.staals hockey sense and ability positively impact so many situations.
