...did that somehow get turned around halfway through your post, that you thought folks were arguing against Staal being a good player?

It just so happens that both Plekanec and Staal had bad puck luck at evens last season - .897 on ice 5v5 sv% for Staal, .903 for Plekanec - resulting in ugly +/-, a stat that relies heavily on teammates and circumstance. Both players get the puck to the right end of the ice despite being put in tough situations by their coaches.
