Must be some other Pens fan site where they bash him
I guess that's an easy conclusion to draw if you gather all your information on such things from the HF boards. Here, in the real world, Staal is indeed subject to much criticism, more so than any other Pen. As Dwight from the Office would say: fact.
Personally, I think he is lacking in any hockey sense whatsoever and has a total lack of that intuitive sense regarding time and space that distinguish great hockey players from so-so ones...but, whatever.
