I'm actually going to stick up for Staal here, Dreakmur. He doesn't play "physical" as far as outwardly hitting people, but he is absolutely in my opinion one of the strongest players along the boards in the NHL. He plays very physical without thunderous hits I guess is kind of my point.

But yeah I certainly do agree with your last point. There is no reason to be worried about "matching up" someone with Staal offensively at this level. I would want someone with a little size out there that can handle battles along the boards against him, but it doesn't have to be someone outwardly physical, and even if you don't have that guy I can't say that I'd be concerned about his offensive ability either way.
