He was relied upon far less at his position during his development than Staal was.

Personally, I give him a pass because he's still young and young players are bound to make mistakes. If he's 26/27 and hasn't gotten any better, or is regressing, I might start to be a little concerned.

Personally, I think he and Brent Seabrook are very comparable players. Seabrook is a cornerstone of that Chicago defense. I feel Staal will be the same for us.
salaries aside, would you rather have staal or d. keith?
