That's exactly how I feel...O'Sullivan would be great but having a potential #1 defenseman in Staal who has the work ethic, talent/skill, and attitude to succeed at the NHL level is something that rarely comes. All he needs is a bit more grooming (most likely in the AHL) and he should be ready to make an impact.
