Neal and Crosby don't play together much unless it's the PP. Staal had that experience and chemistry with Crosby on the first line in Vancouver and most would agree it worked out good, although they were hoping for more. Behind the Nash-Toews-Richards line, I think Staal was the best forward out of the bunch.

Not to mention Staal has had a solid start to the year in Carolina.
