I agree with that.

But I disagree with your assessment of Staal. I think the above quote is one of the areas (besides being able to stifle the opposition's best players) he really excels at.

I also don't think you can say (at this point in their careers) that Staal is significantly worse than Rozsival in terms of managing the puck in the offensive zone. Rozy of 2-3 yrs ago? It's not close. But Rozy of last year was a shadow of his former self.
