I'm with this guy.

The fact is, while he has come back to play this year, with that significant gap in training on all levels, most players games fall off a bit.

You have the odd ones like a Sid that can come back and still do the things he was doing pre-injury, but when you make your bones based on hard work and overall strength, missing the amount of time Staal missed saps a player of his strength.

After playing this season from 01/01/12 on, and getting a full off season fo training everything this summer, I will expect last years Staal to start the 2012-13 season.

He will be fine.

THAT said.

Ducks come to me with Ryan for Staal straight up? Buh-bye Staalsy
