Staal's play has been disappointing but Rangers fans need to be more patient. Every individual recovers from a concussion differently so to say that he should have returned to form by now is nonsense. He missed training camp and didn't play in a real hockey game for almost 9 months. Staal's timing is off right now and he's more unsure of himself as he was prior to the concussion, but hopefully he will improve as the season progresses.
Agreed. Like Sam and Joe said, there were moments where he looked like the "old" Staal, but other moments where you could tell he wasn't fully ready yet.
