I think all that time on a line with Toews really did wonders for his play.
Hawks are keeping Stalberg on the third line so that it will be easier to negotiate a contract. If he has a big year of say 30 points (pro-rated 51 for a full 82 game season) he's gonna ask for a contract with money the Hawks probably can't afford right now. I really want him re-signed though. I hope the Hawks are working something out with a cap hit under 3 with a bit of term (say 4 years).
