I'd still take Staal. Toews is vastly overrated and Staal vastly underrated. If you compare even strength and SH scoring, Staal and Toews have been almost dead even until last year. Staal has been terrific in the playoffs. His short handed goal was the single biggest play in the Pens winning the cup. Yeah, Toews won the Conn Smythe, yet he didn't score a single goal in the final series. Not one! It just proves what I've always known. The press loves him for some reason and supposedly has "leadership", so he is vastly overrated.
I'll be that this will become clear now that Staal can let loose in Carolina.
