If that's not even "1/5 of what everyone's hoped," I have to wonder just how many fans were expecting the second coming of Bobby Orr.

Staal's just inconsistent this season, more so than the previous two. I have no issues with his development, but he's made some horrible mistakes in 2010 which he rarely made in either of the previous two.


He'll be fine.
