We actually don't have a single center or player who can anchor a checking line. Staal would allow us the luxury of having a line that can play straight up against the other team's top line while also being a scoring threat. Put either Benn or Eriksson on his wing and it will be one of the best two-way lines in hockey and Staal's numbers would go up by actually playing with talented players consistently.
You're severely downplaying Staal's scoring ability. I'm not the type to get out the knee pads defending him to the masses but the dude is 24 and has four 20+ goal seasons. We need scorers but we need hockey players that can straight man-up to the other team and dictate situations - Staal can do that.
