I wouldn't go as far to say that Stalberg is "perfect" as a 3rd liner, but he fits perfectly into the Hawks 3rd line. He gives that line an extra offensive threat because of his speed but there just isn't really room for him in our top6.

Put it this way, if there were an injury, god forbid, to Hossa, Sharp, or Kane, would we as Hawks fans feel comfortable with Stalberg filling in that roll? Or would we see a massive hole where Stalberg is playing?

Personally, i dont think he has the finishing ability to be in our top 6. Just enough of an offensive threat on our 3rd line and PP unit though.
