Coming back from any injury mid-season, especially one where a player cannot do any physical training while recovering is always difficult. As I said before, I think Tortorella has handled the situation with Staal extremely well. If Staal can regain his old form this season I have no doubt Tortorella will find a way to get him more minutes.
That's probably true. I don't have any experience with concussions, and wouldn't presume to understand what they go through upon returning.
Well I guess the best we can do is hope for his recovery to continue, and hope to get him back full-force by the playoffs. Having a one-two punch defense pairing is going to be necessary with most of the top 8 teams in the East having some good scoring depth. Doesn't look like any of the one-line-dynamo teams are going to make it this time around.
