But yet again, he shows how hes really nothing special as he whacks ineffectively at vorachek scoring the winner. I swear everytime I see him on the ice against ther Flyers he's just getting the puck taken off his stick, or ridden into the boards like a cheap rodeo bull.

Maybe its just the Flyers playing him well, but I can't believe his ineffectiveness only comes through against the Flyers.

...(minus the 2 on 1 assist )
I actually think Staal is pretty underrated.
His line with Kennedy and Cooke destroyed the Flyers in 2009 and was a huge reason for their Cup win.

Also, weren't people complaining about Giroux being a no-show? Staal's doing.
