Guys, Staal is not Brian Leetch. He's not Potvin
Bourque, or Orr. He's not Zubov or Coffey. Enough is enough on his stats. Stats speak volumes for goal scorers. He is not a goal scorer. Don't tell me he's a goal scorer because he's "supposed to be." Boyler scored 21 goals last year. Does that make him a goal scorer? Or a fluke? Or a disappointment? Does it make him lucky? Did he step up because of disproportionate offense?
Stop going to the stat line and watch the game. Not everything is about scoring. I suppose next you'll want Biron to win 25 games...oh wait...whoops...
To be fair, there is not a Bourque, Orr, Coffee, Zubov, or Leetch in the league right now.
