I think Staal is fine. I think he's been fine for awhile now.

He was never a flashy player and the fact that he's played a bit less dictates that people notice him less and the "where is Staal" or "What is wrong with Staal" crops up. People forget that one of his biggest compliments was that he was solid and stay at home enough so that you didn't notice him much out there.

Now his lack of offense does not trouble me, because he was held without a point in his rough first 15 or so games, but he has had little to no PP time. Staal was never a point producer and it was only Del Zotto's sending to Hartford and Staal's inheritance of first team PP time that improved his offensive numbers last season.
