The whole team **** the bed, but to point at Staal and say "well he led the team in scoring, so we can't trade him..." is ********. It doesn't matter if he leads the team in scoring if Crosby, Malkin, Letang and MAF play like crap, as we still won't go anywhere. However if Staal plays like crap (or isn't on the team) yet the rest play how they should, then it doesn't matter... Our playoff hopes all rest with those 4. Staal's performance (good or bad) might be enough to tilt a close series, but unless the rest come to play it won't matter.
well Stamkos had an amazing season, the team did nothing, clearly they need a new "engine." And complimentary players are all replaceable and shouldn't be valued. I guess Neal should be dumped for anything too
