Not a lot but still some PP TOI.
Given 17% the Pens had, if Staal would be the solution they would have used him by now...

Still Staal did not prove he can score 50 points.
I see him breaking the 60 points mark once in his carreer.
50 points per season carreer is still very good.

You think he has great offense, I have said the reverse for two years now.
Two years later, nothing has changed...

BTW, Staal will be traded this summer. Just watch a team overpay for him.

Even during his junior years he was not a great scorer. Great two way but not great scorer.
I agree and am sick of the ''he's young, he'll score a zillion point when he's older'' argument. Not all players get better every year, he might have (I think he has) plateaued young.
