If you believe he can put up 60 points playing the 3rd line role, with Crosby and Malkin healthy for most of the season, more power to you

And again, I didn't disagree with that. I simply said those factors aren't going to be available to him playing for Pittsburgh.
Apparently you think you have a better grasp on Staal's production in his role here than our coach. Staal was a back to back 49 pt player as our 3C. He's grown significantly offensively since then. Not real sure why this is difficult for you to understand.
