does everyone forget the "Is staal the best d-man in the game?" conversations we had before this last season?
I absolutely agree with you. I think Staal is a much better defensive defensemen but McDonagh has the better overall game. Staal is better in the corners, has a better reach and better positioning. He also doesn't panic getting the puck out of our zone which McD struggle with a lot this year but it's obviously something he can improve on. McD has incredible skating ability though that Staal lacks. In the end though there's no other defensemen on our team I'd rather have defending a 2v1 or 3v1 than Staal.
