They're trying to reinvent the wheel with Staal. Seems like Torts is obsessed with him being an offensive defenseman. He should shoot the puck more as he has a decent shot, but don't turn him into something he's not. I think McDonagh has more ceiling to reach in that department and is a good enough player that he can open up his game. Keep Staal is a defensive rock.
