How was he exposed? I thought he played pretty well in what I saw of the Stars last year (+5)

One thing people have to remember is that it takes time for defensemen to mature. A lot of times, the light doesn't go on until they are 26 or 27. Unlike forwards, who are pretty much a finished product by 23, defensemen can taker much longer to find their game. Woywitka will be fine. Eminger has been fine. Neither can replace Staal but that's not what they are being asked to do.
