I think that Staal hasn't been asked to provide offense but rather to prevent the other team from having offense, but his skill is there. His brothers talent not withstanding. Were coach to give Staal the green light I think his numbers would shoot way up but perhaps at the expense of team cohesion.
I actually think Staal is pretty close to his prime. Add 5 or so points to his offense and possibly a little more defensive capability and there you have it

With Del Zotto, it's hard to predict how good he will be right now. I can see him scoring 60-70 points one year. Will it happen? Probably not, but I'm not going to be shocked if it does
