First of all, when Staal comes back, there us no way in **** that Torts will throw him right into the fire. He will probably play 15 or so minutes a game and it won't be on the first pairing. The guy is just getting over a serious bout with pcs and so he needs to get back into game shape and reacclimated to the physical demands of his position. Playing defense is a totally different situation than throwing a Crosby or Giroux out there for 20+ minutes at center in their first games back and they play as if they've never been away.
