I don't want Staal anywhere near the Winter Classic. He hasn't even been cleared for contact, and we're less than 2 weeks away. That game is going to be nasty and physical, and there are a couple Flyers who are definitely not above trying to cheapshot a returning concussed player.
I personally want to see Staal playing contact hockey in our practices, getting hit for at least a month before making his season debut. The last thing I want is a Crosby scenario. Where we are in the standings right now, we have the luxury of letting Staal get completely healthy before putting him in the lineup. Even with our patchwork defense, we still have one of the best GA numbers in the league.
