It's absolutely crazy. The guy is a top flighted shut down defenseman who's playing pretty good hockey despite not playing for a season. The fact that he's rested could mean he's gonna enter the playoffs feeling rested and by the 2nd round we could see our dominate Marc Staal back in action. I've never seen a player consistently win 1 on 2 battles in the corner like Marc Staal does. It's unreal.
It wasn't just this board. Staal got a TON of love on the main board as well. Do a search and you'll find a few large main board threads praising him, and a few trade proposal threads that had some hefty returns coming to lure Staal to other teams. Not to mention every GDT for other teams that I wandered into.
