Hes playing vs men now, and I think it's easier for an offensively gifted prospect stepping into a mans league to have confidence in their game, and to play their style. While with a physical agitator (especially an undersized one), it's going to be very intimidating at first lining up against a grizzled, battle scarred, body building physiqued agitator/enforcer. He might end up our less crazy headed, Downie or Avery, or he might end up just being another kris newbury. But judging his abilities after just 8 pro games is just lunacy.
Last year opinions changed about Stalberg, as we've had regular discussions with Hawks fans here. Perhaps getting over his concussion made the difference. 22 goals 43 points is pretty good in his 3rd. NHL season. He was 5th. in scoring for the Hawks, a pretty good team.


Vaive and Ludzik on collapse, and Phaneuf.
