I agree.

Jordan Staal didn't really have the skill set for the wing but I think Sutter actually might because of his skating, shooting etc. I think we'll have to develop him into at least a part time winger to keep him happy long-term. The wing is really his only ticket into the top 6 as long as Sid and Gino are around. I think that's a huge reason why Staal left.
I'm not so sure we need to develop him as a wing, but I have been saying since we got him that his RHS and faceoff ability should put him on the ice in a lot of different situations. With that quick hands he showed in front of the net, there's no reason not to put him out there on the PP if the draw is in the right circle and have him go to the net instead of Kunitz.
