I love Staal but it appears to me he is lagging and totally not the same person he was before the injury .. I know he needs time to return to form but I think there is either more to it or is he in torts dog house ? Dave Maloney stated he felt Marc was a step behind and looked to be behind, so my question is with all we have in system at the position do we look to move him?
He looks a step behind, a little tentative at times and seems to be thinking instead of using his instincts...BUT

The guy missed a lot of time and you never judge a player when he comes back mid-season from an injury I'll be concerned if he still doesn't have his game back next season.
