If he missed all of training camp and started missing real games, then yeah he's going to be behind and might have to work up getting back into things, but a couple days of training camp? Not an issue.
No one is earning roster spots in the first week of training camp
haha, I was just about to post the same thing
At the end of the day we're worse without Staal... period. You can talk about teaching him a lesson or whatever, but we're really in no position to start threatening him with the loss of a roster spot. I'm pretty confident that he knows how important he is to this team
