Really?!!?!?! Staal is one of 6 defenseman.he is not the heart of the team,nor is he the best defensively on the blue line,he is not the most physical either.

NYR has top end young talent.There is nothing shocking about there play on the blue line minus Staal..McD and Sauer were phenomenal last yar.Girardi always been solid,but everyone was busy blowing Staal so Girardi got little recognition.delzotto is good,he had a sophmore slump and thats not something un common..I still think delZotto will be a steady solid 50 point defenseman as he matures. Eminger another solid vet on the blue line.Very consistant.i am happy with him.

So can you really say you are shocked at how good the Defense is minus Staal... Team has showwed since day 1,that him being out means nothing.Now if callahan is out,that will hit home.That guys heart and soul of this team.
