Hmm. Staal had a comparable PPG last year. Last year was also a huge anomaly for Staal in his career stats. Furthermore, Staal play in the East, which is a higher scoring conference. Using basic statistic, plus the idea that scoring forwards hold most of the point, he gained anywhere from 5-15 points (per 82) over what he would have had in the West. That would put him closer to 50 points in 82 games instead of 50 points in 62. Alternatively, you can tack on that 15 to Datsyuk's total; he would be better than a PPG.

The numbers don't lie.
