It's a little more cloudy than that. Staal's first year he played with Malkin, granted. The next year he was exclusively a 3rd line center save for some experimenting at the beginning of the season (i.e., he almost never played with the big guns). He had a hiccup in his production then for obvious reasons, another one of which was getting about the last 20 seconds of PP time whenever they had the man advantage. I'm not saying this means Staal is better than Oshie, but I still don't see how you can say anything more than that they're about even.
