I took a look at that by filtering some players and seeing their stats here . I was a bit surprised at how well he stacked up. Staal was pretty comparable to Datsyuk, Kopitar and Backes in usage and results(also looked at Bolland Nielsen Toews Kesler Malhotra Callahan Sutter). Staal played the hardest competition by Corsi QoC, had a positive relative Corsi, had a pretty low Ozone start and one of the higher point productions. For sake of argument I included Sutter, who also played tough minutes against top lines, didn't fair that well, getting badly outshot and pretty poor point production.
